Excellent update !

It's always a torture to read a review from Patrick Kelly about the very swords I'd like to own... It makes them more desirable, if possible.

Cheers,

David

Fanatastic update!

I enjoyed reading about the custom A&A Danish Longsword as well as the Bohemian (which I own). Great Albion reviews and wallpaper too!

GREAT JOB!

It's always great to read the reviews, but I really liked the review on the Danish longsword. Well done guys.

Thx for the reviews! It was a joy to read them.

I'm surprised how light the count/stewart swords are. Does anybody know how these two handle in comparison to swords like the Regent or Talhoffer? I'm just asking because I know that the latter are somewhat heavier but we all know that wheight alone doesn't say anything.

A hands-on review by Patrick Kelly


Patrick must be doing a lot of reading-- each review he writes is even more articulate and "scholarly" sounding than the last!

I thoroughly enjoyed this review. Judging from the handling comments, grip size, and blade length, these swords should be absolutely devastating from horseback!

If Lloyd Clark is still around, perhaps he could fill that part in?

Great job as always, gents! I second Jeremiah's thoughts on Patrick's reviews. I just read his Knight review yet again recently. Big Grin

Thanks! It's no Nathan Robinson, but these are fun to do. I'm still playing around with the software, mine still look a little amature, but that's not stopping me. Happy
