Because I'm never satisfied with my own work, lol here is the new and improved wood grip for the Honshu.
I notice the gaps on the pommel where the new grip is decidedly narrower than the aperture. Do you plan on wrapping the wood core in leather, or something similar?
Yep, working on the leather wrap right now. If you want to see wood grip version one, go back a page. The first one I didnt like as much as I made it a little too thick and wasn't happy with the leather wrap. This one is much more ergonomic and I'm using a more quality leather.
We finally got ours, after a lot of doubt... and of course, its going back.
* blade is bent; not as bad as on our other Honshu tryouts, but noticably the blade isnt lined with the grip. But looks better. * the tang is rattling LOUDLY in the grip, obviously not glued * the screws/bolds cant be tightened, theyre loose and are "running through" if you try to tighten them
Sorry. But - at least as it is sold here in Germany - this is crap.

RufusScorpius: Taking the big white bird to Germany the second week of Feb. Everything laid in. Going to meet up with Markus313, and anybody else that is in the general area of Dusseldorf. Should be fun, and yes, will post pics and vids.

AndiTheBarvarian: Only low rank barbarians have a Roman eques in the cage behind their house. High ranks have a senator! The children love to play horse with them.

RufusScorpius: I disagree. Pure blood is noble equestrian blood. But I can understand why a mongrel barbarians and their Pictish pets wouldn't think that to be important.

tancred: That's pretty cool, Christain! Maybe your friend could portray a Turcopole or something similar? I'm sure you've been full of good advice for his armor kit.

christain: He bought a H/T EMSHS and a Deepeeka Great Helm, and is currently waiting on a gambeson, tunic, and cape. Maybe some mail later on.

christain: DNA is over-rated. It's not who made ya, it's what you make of yourself. I've got an African-American buddy that's currently putting together a full Crusader kit. (And YES, I got him into it. )

RufusScorpius: Hey, I got cha DNA right here, buddy! Eh?
Jan 26, 2020 21:56:08 GMT
treeslicer: Somebody run a swab over Scorpy's chinstrap, we need some DNA.

treeslicer: Could something unspeakable involving Celts and wolves (without a Trojan in sight anywhere) account not only for the sudden appearance of the Romans, but shed some light on the legends as well? Time to solicit a grant...

RufusScorpius: That's better! I demand only the highest quality put downs and smack talking.

AndiTheBarvarian: "Proper Insult"? That's the name of my throwing axe! It stops Roman sophistry unfailingly!
Jan 26, 2020 16:10:57 GMT
RufusScorpius: K, now you're not even throwing proper insults. Honestly. Even subhuman barbarians can do better than that.
