christain: Not frozen seas here (yet), but plenty wet and icky cold outside. Good day to stay inside huddled up in bed with the missus, puppydawgs, a bag of popcorn, and an old movie. ;) Feb 19, 2019 20:36:40 GMT
ouroboros: Yeargh and avast ye scurvy dawgs. Let sl the mooring lines for our boat be in frozen seas ... -19 C ... Feb 19, 2019 15:32:26 GMT
nerdthenord: It was a nice week off. Alas, I must return to the grind tomorrow. Valhalla!! Feb 18, 2019 0:39:55 GMT
ouroboros: -6C east of Ottawa, winds from the west at 14kph. Nice looking morning out there. I see a good day ahead Feb 16, 2019 15:22:16 GMT
christain: I'll be SOOO glad to get back to work. Boss said maybe mid-March. I need a H/T Bastard to keep my H/T Longsword company. :D Bet your boots, I'll have a winter side-job lined up for next year! ;) Wifey doesn't like it when things get tight. Neither do I. Feb 15, 2019 23:41:58 GMT *
christain: It's about 72F. here. I may sit out by the fire-pit tonight. Spent a good part of the afternoon polishing armor. This becomes a bi-weekly thing in winter. But, with the up 'n down temps here, I can see rust forming. From cold and dry to warm and damp--yup. Feb 15, 2019 23:34:20 GMT
ouroboros: +3 degrees C today. I'm rejoicing in this summer weather while it lasts. The downturn begins next moanday. Feb 15, 2019 20:26:27 GMT
nerdthenord: Been playing a bit up RDR2, but that is gonna take a full summer to dive into, not just half a week off. Been reading a ton of valiant comics too. XO Manowar, divinity, eternal warrior, all the good stuff. Feb 14, 2019 23:02:35 GMT
nerdthenord: Basically we had our last bit of pseudo winter, I'm relaxing doing Jack all for the rest of the week, and my custom seax just had it's pommel finished. Feb 14, 2019 23:01:08 GMT
nerdthenord: So have not give any shout box updates for a few days because I didn't want to push aside more important conversation. Feb 14, 2019 23:00:06 GMT
christain: I feel that the forward slanting curvature of the crown and the extended nasal gives the helm a unique look and extra protection by allowing glancing blows. Nasal helms are about the bare minimum in armored combat, but combined with a mail coif....yeah! Feb 14, 2019 22:42:31 GMT
Matt KOA: christain - Glad the new Phrygian caught your eye. I liked it too - particularly because that unique and interesting style was not well represented on our site when compared to the many other more standard "nasal bar" helms. Feb 14, 2019 15:22:13 GMT
MOK: Thanks Matt, that does help! I've seen a few places do it the hard way, and nobody ever specifies. :) Feb 13, 2019 21:10:51 GMT
christain: Armored workouts are on hold due to a slightly twisted ankle. Should be better in a day or two. Now, I just walk around(limping)in my armor. Makes it interesting to the neighbors when I go out to the box and get the mail. (rofl) Feb 13, 2019 20:29:33 GMT
ouroboros: Snow and drifting white doom see 1 degree C temps and trenches through my yard from the deck to the cars to the shed and all the hiding places our barn cats like to sequester themselves Feb 13, 2019 18:49:43 GMT
ouroboros: Brother Knight--hows the armoured workout treating You? Feb 13, 2019 18:46:37 GMT
christain: MattKOA: Love the new Phrygian Norman and Crusader nasal helmets you guys have up. I see an order in my near future. Can't go to Ren-Fest wearing last years armor. That would be a fashion faux-pas. (rofl) Feb 13, 2019 18:40:32 GMT
Matt KOA: Jordan - We checked with our supplier and the sword is still considered "Back Ordered" with them and they do not have an ETA to provide. I'm sorry I don't have anything more specific at this time. Feb 13, 2019 17:16:15 GMT
Matt KOA: MOK - We measure in a straight line from where the blade exits the hilt to the end of its tip. Hope that helps! Feb 13, 2019 16:52:16 GMT
MOK: Hey Matt, just to clarify, do you measure curved blades in a straight line from one end to the other, or along the curve? Feb 13, 2019 9:11:12 GMT
