I'm curious if anyone here has ever used parts from the various cheapo indian replica sabers. There's a few on KOA have threaded blades and so would be fairly easy to take down and replace the blade with something else (I'd probably put a practical rapier blade in them or find a reasonable facsimile to a lighter saber blade).

I have a sabre build I will be working on in the near future. I have not considered buying a wall hanger simply for parts. I keep searching everywhere for people who fabricate sword hilts, but there is little in terms of modern sword hilts. Let us know how this works out for you.
For the swords that KofA describes as munitions grade, are the scabbards generally expected to be okay?
Hard to answer precisely. The discount indicates how bad the problem is. For a 5% markdown there are probably a couple of seviceable dings, and maybe some scratches. Nothing that dramatic. Couple of points of small surface rest also possible, but I have seen that in Windlass swords mostly.

christain: Don't feel alone, Scott. I gotta work Sunday while the rest of the family has Easter dinner. That's okay though...I'll just eat double when I get home.

ouroboros: Easter Greetings to you too!

brothersteel: Finishing up "The Robe" as we're prepping for tomorrow. Seeing the one sword fight in the film last night, I laugh inwardly at how much Olympic fencing still reigned in Hollywood in those days. A blessed Easter to all!

ouroboros: Highway between us and Ottawa that follows the river is closed today for some flood proofing and sandbag work ... and 6 of 6 seedlings are showing their first set o leaves in the grow space under 600w of led lighting...

ouroboros: Got 2 crazies of 11 and 7 years home with me today. Just ended morning tachikaze session and the weathers gearing up for another wet day.

redscorpion: yeah, cars. Always spending money on those things. I just had to put spark plugs in my older Jag. $300 just about covers cost of materials (plugs and gaskets) - then it's a 4 hour job to change them out.

christain: TGIF, y'all....Anyone have any cool weekend plans ? Perfect weather tomorrow for Ren-Fest here, but after having to drop $300 on car repairs ....maybe next weekend/paycheck. Even had my kit packed up and ready.

redscorpion: Ah, I see now. I stand (or rather sit) corrected. Nice seax. Been thinking about picking one up for myself.

christain: Congrats, Nord! Nice looking seax you have there. You've waited patiently, and now...the reward! When you decide you want a Viking longship replica built, I know a couple'a guys.....
