ryanc: I love your word choices, durinnmcfurren. :) I'm a viking fan myself. Norway all the way! (But I'm saving for a katana hehe) Sept 22, 2021 14:20:51 GMT
czamora0317: Soooo sanxxjones dosn't have my museum glamdring that I've been looking to buy :( Sept 20, 2021 3:32:09 GMT
tera: Mobile theme appears to be broken again Sept 17, 2021 16:45:42 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: ókaldr! Sept 17, 2021 6:38:53 GMT
durinnmcfurren: He is using a picture of my viking equipment. He has nothing to do with me. This is a very niðinger-like act on his part! Not drengr at all. Sept 17, 2021 0:16:30 GMT
aldarith: account name
Sept 16, 2021 23:55:25 GMT
aldarith: Scammer is at it again Sept 16, 2021 23:55:15 GMT
lebleuchevalier: I just got a new Windlass sword and was surprised some of these are coming pre-sharpened from Museum Replicas. There's a big secondary bevel, but it came nice and sharp. Sept 12, 2021 15:44:39 GMT
theshadowrealm: I was in Vegas for the week, just got back from the flamingo. Did a whole lot of stuff. Sept 11, 2021 17:26:39 GMT
treeslicer: Glad you're alive. If we had dead people posting here, it could ruin the site's reputation. :D Sept 11, 2021 17:23:00 GMT
nerdthenord: I'm alive. Had a pretty terrible weekend but I am alive. Sept 8, 2021 0:40:52 GMT
Ouroboros: Master , been good if not busier than busy. Think the family has only been home 2 weekends and a week all summer. Camping fun before the winter grinds us to grist. Hope your labs come back a.o.k. long haul symptoms suck. Aug 31, 2021 1:15:59 GMT *
LoE: Lemme guess... wants a private check, no refunds. Shares stock photos. Doesn't want accountability. But has exactly whatever it is you're looking for. Aug 30, 2021 23:19:06 GMT
LoE: Never selling it himself of course. Just a zero post guy that "knows" of someone who has one, if you'll reach out to him privately. I get tired of the scam artists. Wish they'd get arrested. Aug 30, 2021 23:16:49 GMT
LoE: Watch out for tomk001. Seems to be the next occurrence of the same scammer aldarith pointed out. Hitting me up in PM's offering whatever I have listed in WTB. Aug 30, 2021 23:15:13 GMT
shotokan: G'morning , how's things going? Aug 30, 2021 13:38:28 GMT
Ouroboros: Decided to compare custom blades between rhe site listed below and hanbon (read the faq and it mentions hanbon) same options it would appear to be same? New face, old business? Aug 30, 2021 4:42:46 GMT *
tmoney: Can I get some feed back on my new store please. Aug 30, 2021 1:44:10 GMT
LoE: lemme guess, he creates an account, has zero posts, then PM's someone stating a friend of his has exactly the sword you listed in the WTB section. Aug 28, 2021 16:00:22 GMT
shotokan: Thanks, i’m good now but it wasn’t fun for 4-5 days… Aug 25, 2021 16:02:30 GMT
