Just a reminder for those within striking distance of MRL, the Annual Sale is tomorrow.
For all the rest of us they are offering 20% off their entire online catalog. Typically there are a few exceptions. First it's 20% off INSTOCK items and not including Gift Certificates. Second, you can not combine with other promos. This last I don't see stated but it has proven to be the case for the last 4 years or so.
Happy Hunting !

Just got back from the warehouse. Not a great year, but it’s not uncommon to have a couple light years before a year of cool scores. I did pick up a Bosworth long sword that had snapped 3” below the guard. They had it labeled as “fun broken sword prop,” but I saw it more accurately as full hilt set for $30. The blade may have been poo, but there’s nothing wrong with the parts. 😉. I wonder how well other manufacturers’ tangs will fit with them.
Free shipping for orders over $200 also disabled for sale or promotional items. Having temporarily dug out again, this is really tempting but I really must resist. The discount would offset shipping and the site(s) discount on all items.
I just managed to get the hilt assembly undone on the Bosworth shard. I’ll put pics in the construction database when I have a moment, but it was pretty solid. True peened construction (no threading) but the pass through was totally round. Keying is accomplished by a rectangular hollow that fits over an extension of the wood grip core. The peen was robust, but the whole thing did pick up a bit of wiggle when I slammed my pell with it. Granted, I mean slammed. Nice guard and pommel for $30.
reptaronice1: But is it really worth it when u suffer from it later in life?

redscorpion: I remember one day it was about 48c and noticed I was standing in a small puddle. Water was dripping from my uniform and down my sleeves. My feet were soaking wet. It was my own sweat. But at least my skin was cleansed of toxins...Hell? Been there.
