Hey, folks. Been lurking here for a while but didn't feel worthy of registering until I at least had something to start my arms collection.

Well, that's finally here. I ordered a Type M Breidox axehead from Albion this past weekend. Unfortunately, I'm at college, so I can't get it directly. Blasted "no weapons in the dorms" rule... Sad On the bright side, though, I'm going to order an ash pole and haft it when I'm home over winter break.

Hopefully, this is just the start of a large collection, and it's great to finally be able to post here. Happy

Edit: Gah. Typo.

Oh, East of sands and sunlit gulf, your blood is thin, your gods are few;
You could not break the Northern wolf and now the wolf has turned on you.
The fires that light the coasts of Spain fling shadows on the Eastern strand.
Master, your slave has come again with torch and axe in his right hand!
-Robert E. Howard

It's not a weapon. It's a tool. Surely you're allowed to keep a few tools in your room....

Heh, I wish I could get away with that argument.

*snort* All right, that's got me chuckling uncontrollably...

I'm at USF. Not the greatest of schools, but it's in a good location for me, and I got into the Honors College.
