No need to explain or justify, just vote honestly. You can vote for all of them, if you have bought from all of them, or one if that is your only maker/buy. As many as apply to your buys. In my case, not all of them.
Of course, stories of what, when and where can be interesting but the poll can be voted on virtually forever. So if trends go another way we can see that over the years.

I'm sure there are SOME out there who could use that
That is why it is a next to anonymous poll. No one need disclose what maker/company they have bought swords from. I will say there are three elections I did not check a box for.
I do hope though that voters vote honestly, as the poll will remain open for a couple of decades forward (if the board even exists then). A pity though that once voting , tough to update individual experiences without ongoing polls but there is a new acquisition thread that has survived several editions of the Sword Buying Guide forums (it is in the collections subforums). I would expect some will be easily be able to check all listed (even the two other options).
Polls don't relate the entire process but they can be an interesting demographic tool. I've posted age polls a few times in the cafe and the bell curve has changed each time but really only shows the readers and posters that visit the cafe. Hopefully, this poll may show pretty quickly not just experience but preferences regarding medieval (or any, really) swords without holding a torch to anyone's feet.

nah, I was referring to something else. at work had a guy enter bldg looking for his car in pkd. took elev down then back up said he was in wrong bldg. had been following map on smartphone. on his way out I called out, phones not so smart now, huh lol. had some others step into a shutdown elev and press a button, not realizing lol
my votes are true. don't see the need to go with something that isn't
nothing in life is real. so, if anything goes wrong, blame the dead guy
there is more truth here than fiction, for fiction is all the more easily to be believed than truth
Nope, the number of swords per source one owns doesn't matter, just the sources they have bought from. Not vendors but the producers (sometimes the same).
With only 18 voters after the first half day, either there really aren't a lot of participants in general (including lurkers) or those not choosing to vote but the curve thus far about what I expected. Disappointed in the lack of Del Tin love but some expected parallels.

It's a horror to be me, attention span like a housefly. What did I just say?
I took a look at some czech makers sites. One (can't remember the name in the moment) makes very nice swords but has over a year waiting time, the others are not really bad, usually a bit heavy, but nothing I need to have.
Nope, the number of swords per source one owns doesn't matter, just the sources they have bought from.
I've been kinda racking my brain for a couple of minutes now and just can't figure out what this data would be useful for. Help a guy out, will ya? It's gonna bug me for the rest of the day.

Over the years I have bought from everybody on that list - except Darksword, from whom I will never buy anything ever. Others not on that list that I have bought from - Baltimore Knife and Sword, Darkwood Armory, Castille Armory, and a whole bunch of swords from Gus Trim

ouroboros: I say we take off and nuke the whole site from orbit--it's the only way to be sure
Feb 20, 2020 23:21:21 GMT
RufusScorpius: Satellite GPS plot of Christain's property, enter into the Automatic Geometry Guidance and resurface and re-slope his entire property. Then spray it with that green seed mix from a high pressure hose. Should take 20 minutes for the whole job.
Feb 20, 2020 23:19:11 GMT
RufusScorpius: Oh man, you let slip my gimmick. And I was going to do it by remote piloting using GPS data mapping
Feb 20, 2020 23:15:36 GMT
treeslicer: Rufus, why do I get this picture of you, in armor, driving some piece of air-conditioned heavy equipment you borrowed from the local railroad, scraping Christain's lawn down to bare dirt, then scattering gravel ballast all over it?
Feb 20, 2020 23:11:27 GMT
RufusScorpius: I made you a promise I would cut your grass in armor and I fully intend to keep it. I just can't promise a time. But it's gonna happen.
Feb 20, 2020 11:28:49 GMT
christain: I think Spring is gonna come early this year, so there'll be plenty of time for mower-jousting.
Feb 20, 2020 8:46:00 GMT
christain: Come and help me MOW my grass in your Roman gear!-------
Feb 20, 2020 8:38:25 GMT
RufusScorpius: Primarily for MOW. Operator training, mechanics, track structure and geometry, hydraulics, electric, PLC, and so forth.
Feb 20, 2020 2:22:01 GMT
Scott: RufusScorpius what sort of training?
Feb 20, 2020 1:16:30 GMT
RufusScorpius: Canada is on my short list of countries to conquer. I'll bring my hakama and long underwear for sure.
