Veerdin: Anybody know anywhedre that has a reasonably priced smallsword (prefferably with scabbard) for sale? The CS one is sold out everywhere I can see except a massively overpriced one on ebay and not even the Depeeka ones seem to be available anywhere. Nov 26, 2023 2:50:37 GMT
eastman: I have seen SCA dueling with rapier and rubber chicken, so there is a precedent for parry-poultry Nov 25, 2023 1:33:07 GMT

eastman: would make for an odd fencing style - rapier and parrying turkey Nov 24, 2023 1:38:40 GMT
eastman: thankfully I've never had a sword fight while carving a turkey, but there are 2 Kaskara by the kitchen doorway Nov 24, 2023 1:38:06 GMT

Thank you for your message. The mekugi should have been put in from the omote side, I guess. They are half hidden by the tsukamaki on the other side.

ziggy: Further to my earlier shout, I had posted in the wrong place (thanks mrstabby) so I have now created a thread in Beginners forum 'help identifying this strange short sword' if anyone out there can help :) Oct 30, 2023 18:30:22 GMT
ziggy: Hi - I am a total newbie and am looking for help identifying a sword I have inherited. I've posted some pics on a sword identification thread, so if any kind person can take a look that would be amazing - thank you! Oct 30, 2023 13:41:51 GMT
ecovolo: Hi! It's been a *long* time since I've posted. I have a question in the fantasy swords section; if folks could take a gander to help answer my question, I'd appreciate it! Oct 27, 2023 4:25:41 GMT

mrstabby: hi pixelsword. I think it's fine where it is. Oct 25, 2023 9:01:40 GMT
pixelsword: Sorry, I just want to make sure I am 'doing it right' - thanks! Oct 25, 2023 3:05:54 GMT
pixelsword: HI all... new here.. I just posted a sword in the Items for Sale forum and see also a Non-professional classified, and am wondering if I posted in the correct place, of if I should post in both for better visibility, or is that even allowed? Oct 25, 2023 3:05:20 GMT
