it's been awhile but, i'm back into the hobby after buying my first sword (a DSA two handed gothic) 10 years ago from the SBG shop. I got the hobby bug again in late march and bought 5 new blades to add to my collection.
Anyway, looking forward to being in the community instead of just lurking.
Welcome back, Jeremy. Also, what are your new swords?
Thanks for the welcome, everyone.
My new swords are:
1. kingston arms type XVIII knight. 2. ronin katana dojo pro #5 (scratch and dent sale is great) 3. ronin katana dojo tanto #1 4. ryujin custom wakizashi the choji midare no-hi one. 5. balaur arms 12th century teutonic.
Now follows the conclusion, that whosoever shall think or find himself in his fight too weak for the agent's, or patient agent, and therefore, or by reason of his drunkenness, or unreasonable desperateness shall press within the half sword, or desperately run in of purpose to give hurt, or at least for taking of one hurt, to give another, shall most assuredly be in great danger of death or wounds, and the other shall still be safe and go free. - PARADOXES OF DEFENCE, George Silver, 1599
carbon: Sharpened one of my C/S H&H swords for the first time using an adjustable fixture I made. Went from a little better than butter knife to an even, polished, paper slicing edge. It's a slow process but it does work.
