I was recently browsing through the SBG forums and ran across something that sounds reeeeally interesting. It was said that Kingston will be coming out with a Katzbalger and....wait for it.....wait....a Zweihander! The Katz will be out in the fairly near future from the sound of it...the Zweihander still in the very early stages. I don't know about y'all, but I'm saving my pennies! Big Grin ....McM

My understanding of the Kingston arms line is that CAS Iberia is attempting to re-release some of their earlier offerings (pre- factory fire) at very competitive prices. Is this verifiable?

For example, their 'fencing side-sword' hilt is nearly identical to their earlier production side sword (s) . Hopefully we'll see the return and/or improvements to their old rapier designs as well. I miss Hanwei's former large selection of cheap (but decent) practice weapons to be able to recommend to students.

But wounded honor is only cured with steel.

We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.

This information came straight from the horse's mouth---Mr. Blake Pogue. I don't really know who he is, but is apparently a high-up with Kingston/CAS/Hanwei. They must be doing something right...the sharp version of the re-released side sword is already sold out and back-ordered at KoA. If I didn't already own the original Hanwei version, I would have bought one in a heartbeat. Wink ....McM
