mrstabby: Mine gets pressed to the top as well, but that way the tip gets ground of, don't like that either. :D Unfortunately I'm an edge-perfectionist. Also one wrong move when unsheathing and the throat nicks the edge on either side. Mar 31, 2024 19:02:10 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Perhaps I've got one from the batch for Matt Easton ?!? Mar 31, 2024 18:22:59 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: When I draw the saber it's automatically pressed with the spine to the scabbard so there's space for the edge to not touch the scabbard. When the false edge starts it's released but can be carefully draw completely without touching the scabbard. Mar 31, 2024 8:10:26 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: Too little gap for a needle, so also I see no way to get the glue in. Mar 31, 2024 8:02:34 GMT
mrstabby: I was easily able to poke through the glue on all of my Windlass swords/daggers, then it just seems to wick in forever, it never was thick. I can't imagine how there isn't any dulling though, unless yours is less wide or the scabbard is bigger. Mar 31, 2024 7:04:12 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: There's not really an opening on mine, very good fit of guard and blade and some glue or epoxy in it. Since my scabbard doesn't dull the edge too I seem to be on the lucky side with Windlass this time. Mar 31, 2024 1:25:54 GMT
mrstabby: Maybe it screams in pain now, but I like it.. Mar 30, 2024 20:35:26 GMT
mrstabby: PSA: Give your Windlass swords some superglue, they appreciate it. My 1796 drank 4g through the opening between guard and blade, now it rings much louder and vibrates much less. Mar 30, 2024 20:34:25 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Not easy to smell without a nose... Mar 30, 2024 3:17:59 GMT
mrstabby: "Sorry Mr. Johnson, I need to store my sword for a few hundread years until someone worthy comes and gets it, mind if I stick it here?" Mar 29, 2024 18:54:11 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: First you have to try getting it into! (rofl) Mar 29, 2024 14:52:50 GMT *
mrstabby: What now, pulling a sword out of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson? Intriguing! :D Mar 29, 2024 12:49:08 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Dwayne Johnson disagrees! Mar 28, 2024 19:38:14 GMT
rschuch: As anyone who's seen Excalibur knows, getting the sword INTO the rock isn't the problem, it's getting it back out again. Mar 28, 2024 19:13:13 GMT
durinnmcfurren: Movie turned out better than it had any right to be considering how many times a blade was shoved into rock. Yes, even once would be too much, but it was way more than once. Mar 16, 2024 22:36:55 GMT
Ramses1079: Yeah me too, which is a shame because he’s a good author. I guess that’s like when your favorite band releases a new album, and there’s always one or two tracks that you’re like “what were they thinking?” Mar 16, 2024 19:12:10 GMT
