I got a CF Ranger Belt thus far...More under the tree, but we only get to open one Christmas Eve. Probably some Harley parts under there, this is probably it forum-related. Nice work, my thanks for Mr. Fletcher for helping my wife make the right decision.



MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone here at myArmoury.com!

I ordered myself a "second" Alchem Reaver Basket Hilt blunt.



Pictured above is the one I already own which was custom made to my specs. The second one will be just like it. Cost is $200. I should have it in three weeks.

This is the sword I used to duel Adam this past summer and I am hoping to try out a little two-sword action this coming summer. I will also have a second sword to offer to people who want to safely fight me sword and shield. It has a rubber tip and a good flex to absorb thrusts.

I cover the basket hilt with thin leather and that offers maximum hand protection. The basket hilt is considered part of my personal armor like my fencing mask, so a hit to the basket is considered a disabling hit to the hand.

No athlete/youth can fight tenaciously who has never received any blows: he must see his blood flow and hear his teeth crack... then he will be ready for battle.

Oh no, nothing in my house is safe...

I went under the Christmas tree yesterday morning and my wife also got me the Dremel 400XPR with all the accessories (router, planer, light, cutting guides, 100s of bits, flex cable extension, etc.) and to make matters worse, my parents bought me the 4.6V cordless Dremel.

I mostly just got clothes from my significant other, but my daughter got me a decent tool set with crescent wrenches, and a socket set I needed for home repair.

As for fun stuff I am still recovering financially from my my purchase of an Albion Talhoffer w/campaign scabbard earlier this year. I got a belt rig made for me by a friend so the whole rig was quite pricey...but worth it as its all high quality.

I did manage to purchase a few books for myself though, Medieval Civilization, by Jacques LeGoff, One on the historical King Arthur (cant remember the Author right now) and most notably A copy of the Chivalry Bookshelf re-print of Armour from the battle of Wisby by Bengt Thordeman. Now that last one was a find as Chanced upon it at the local half price books for $50.00. I have always wanted a copy needless to say I purchased it immediately.

Happy New year every body
