Ouroboros: of the great T.O...I hope you had a mighty fine Canada day, celebrated exactly how you wished it to be ;) Jul 3, 2020 22:19:48 GMT
aldarith: and as sword enthusiasts, we all do a lot of backwards-looking :) Jul 3, 2020 22:02:04 GMT *
aldarith: It's a day of both. You can't consider the future without considering the past, otherwise you can't tell which way is which. Jul 3, 2020 22:01:42 GMT

Zwilnik: wow sorry for the typos Jun 27, 2020 17:54:59 GMT
Zwilnik: treeslicer, I got the same sword and I'm in love with it. I got their 14th century longsword and I'm highly disappointed. Blade is waaaaaay to bendy and there are some major glue/scuff marks art the base of the blade. Also it won't fit into the scabbard. Jun 27, 2020 17:54:36 GMT
aldarith: Italian Longsword! Jun 27, 2020 5:28:24 GMT
legacyofthesword: Which longsword was it? The 15th Century Arming swords is very stiff. Jun 27, 2020 2:19:16 GMT
