Just purchased a Devil’s Edge Xiphos from Mark Millman and I must say he is an excellent seller! Was very prompt with messaging, answered all my questions honestly and was quick to point out any flaws or misgivings with the sword before I purchased it. Mark was very professional and offered a very fair price for the xiphos and even provided some good customization recommendations that I may use when Jimbo Curry gets his hands on it. I highly recommend buying from Mark if you have something you’re looking for.
ouroboros: I'll go put in the order--Usual?

christain: Hmmm...Moose and maple. I guess the lawnmower exhaust smells like ......... .......

ouroboros: Then my northern moose and maple syrup powered lawnmower will be ready...

ouroboros: ...then we will have to wait until June when the tundra around Ottawa turns a glossy wet ...

christain: February might be a bit chilly for armored lawnmower jousting. I don't want to freeze my tassets off.

redscorpion: I hope not too much delay. It looks like a 50/50 chance I'll be in Waco in February. Your house is between mine and Waco. Just sayin...

christain: Ahh...the (not so) fun part. The wait is always the hardest. It'll all be worth it when you get to strap shiny steel all over your body.
Dec 5, 2019 11:43:47 GMT
redscorpion: Anytime between now and the 20th. I'm going to try to get some clarification on the tracking location. Right now it says "en route to the next destination". So....waiting...waiting...waiting....

christain: Speaking of historical kits, Red...When's your stuff supposed to be in hand? More importantly, on your body?!? Armor ain't just for talking about......... (Yeah, it's 10 'till 3AM and I'm wide awake. )

redscorpion: Oh, brother nord, it's gonna be a looooonnnnnnnng two days 'till Friday!
Dec 5, 2019 1:00:57 GMT
nerdthenord: My stuff gets here Friday!
Dec 4, 2019 19:36:16 GMT
nerdthenord: My helmet shipped this morning, meaning it’s all on the way now. It’s supposed to be here early next week.

redscorpion: "Close enough" is defined by what is good enough for the individual who owns the kit. If they are happy with what they got with their money, then that's the standard. Fantasy, "homage", or 100% authentic- it's up to the individual.
Dec 4, 2019 11:02:04 GMT
strigoil: And 100% agree with what you all been saying, the clothes are so so important to a kit, they really complete it
Dec 4, 2019 2:32:07 GMT
strigoil: Close enough is hard to define, depends how much knowledge you have on the pieces, the more knowledge the more jarring it is when people get it completely wrong, but there has to be a compromise of course, mostly because of cost.
Dec 4, 2019 2:30:52 GMT
redscorpion: Really nothing today is "authentic" unless it's for a museum and hand woven and hand stitched with homemade thread etc. So I say if it's close enough... it's good enough.

nerdthenord: Roughly yes. The boots are Oseburg style so contemporary to the era I am aiming for.
