William Swiger: Middle of the night and watching the Steelers play KC. Looks like the GB/Dallas game was a great one. Jan 16, 2017 2:54:14 GMT
vinland: I ended up just looking at various combinations of swords posted on his facebook page. Peened Kriegschwert with blue scabbard, chestnut brown grip, and golden tan belt and satin fittings. Only thing I'm not sure about is the grip color, I just can't choose Jan 12, 2017 5:45:53 GMT
Faldarin: Unfortunately that's not quite all the colors either. I've got something coming Antique Mahogany, that I'll show once I get it, but it'll obviously be a few months. ;) Jan 12, 2017 0:34:14 GMT
stormmaster: on the VA facebook page Jan 11, 2017 22:35:31 GMT
vinland: Does anybody know if there's an image floating around that shows all of Valiant Armoury's leather colors? I can find some from people here who have bought from them but I can't find all of them Jan 11, 2017 19:50:14 GMT
The Incredible Holg: sorry... wrong place, wrong time... Jan 11, 2017 17:34:36 GMT
The Incredible Holg: IMMEDIATE shipping info after making a claim... why (did i have to get) so serious? Jan 11, 2017 17:32:59 GMT
robert: Talking about low temperatures and freezing water, I recently did some cutting outside with my new Albion and after like 3 minutes when I was done and it was time to wipe the blade some of the water had already frozen on the blade ??? Jan 11, 2017 14:32:12 GMT
L Driggers (fallen): I'm getting sick someone please wait on me hand and foot. Jan 11, 2017 4:33:03 GMT
L Driggers (fallen): Going to be in the 70's the next couple of days. Then this weekend freezing rain, I hate freezing rain. Jan 10, 2017 18:37:17 GMT
Faldarin: First run of freezing rain this year~ Yay? :( Jan 10, 2017 14:56:48 GMT
stormmaster: picture attachments not working again, some weird stuff popping up Jan 10, 2017 7:24:26 GMT
stormmaster: 20 degrees and windy, ordering takeout only Jan 10, 2017 7:22:03 GMT
L Driggers (fallen): I see your 30 and raise you 54. Jan 10, 2017 4:07:06 GMT
robert: 30 degrees?! In winter?!I wish ;_; Jan 9, 2017 17:18:04 GMT
JGonzalez: I'd eat a nasty store bought pizza for 30 degrees right now. Jan 9, 2017 13:22:32 GMT
William Swiger: It was 30 degrees this morning and felt like a heat wave...... Jan 9, 2017 13:12:16 GMT
