AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !

I agree with Bill: Noooooooooooooo, not now ! I haven't recovered yet from my 15th Century Twohander purchase. ( Which I love by the way. )

I really need a year, well maybe a few months or maybe a few weeks Cry Laughing Out Loud

Nice picture and a nice offer.

Does the sale include everything in the production lines?

When will the sale end?

Hello Guys

First off sorry Bill and Jean didn't mean to cause you heart ache Happy

Hey Joe to be honest we do not know as yet kind of depends on the response and our work load. I would say its good for at least a week and probably longer. I will post a few days before the end of the sale on our website update page so there is some warning.

Best
Craig

PS for the instant gratification junkies there is a list on the sale page of our site that gives you an idea of whats readfy to ship Happy A&A 2005 Sale Page

Please, somebody buy a Black Prince Sword and send it to one of our team members for a proper review! We'll glady pick up the shipping on it. This sword has always been one of those models that needs a good review written for it, as there is so much to say about it that cannot be conveyed simply by looking at it.

I agree. I reviewed this sword back in the early days of SFI. A&A has made improvements to the sword since then, and I'd be very interested in seeing the changes.

It would be interesting to compare the A&A Black Prince with the Albion Castellan. Both are great swords, with similar dimensions, though I think the Castellan is a little lighter, with the COG further down the blade.

I have the A&A Black Prince sword with a nice Christian Fletcher scabbard and longsword belt rig. It is a beauty!! COG is real close to the cross and it tracks great in the thrust. I received it second hand for a great price and it is the best looking sword in my collection (until that basket hilt from Castle Keep arrives..... but it is not set in stone that it will be any nicer looking then this!!)

I'm currently saving toward an Albion SoSMT, but by gosh, I'm tempted. I've long had my eye on some A&A pointies -- daggers in particular. You guys put out some awesome stuff.

Hey Chad. That's definitely worth discussing on Saturday. I'll definitely bring mine and let people play; just keep in mind I don't have a scabbard for it, though I'd love one. -Ted

Hi Craig, a friend of mine wanted to get a GBS from you after seeing the GBS you sold to my friend years ago. We sent you email but got no answer so far. Please check. Happy

I heartily recommend the GBS to anyone who is interested. I have had one for about a month (ex-Nathan Robinson) and love the piece. Fantastic craftsmanship and wonderful feel.

Sigh. I thought I might be able to resist this sale, but apparently resistance is, and was, futile. Just
got off the phone a few minutes ago from ordering a couple of axes.

On the upside they should be here pretty quick. Happy

Confused I am agonizing over this one. Confused I had already initiated some discussion with Craig about a possible purchase. However, I wasn't really ready to make the jump quite this soon - I have bought three swords since the beginning of December. Also, I still have taxes to do, and may owe Uncle Sam a buck or two. But I would hate to miss an opportunity like this. Then, there would be the question of what to get. Henry V? Black Prince? Dresden Rapier? Gustav Vasa? etc., etc., etc.
