Hi everyone-

This is my first myArmoury.com post. I'm primarily a late 14th century enthusiast. I've been hunting for makers and suppliers of medieval arms, armor, and other goods for some time now, and just came upon a Polish site that appears to sell some really nice stuff. I'm wondering if anyone has had an interaction with them, and can speak to their quality of workmanship, reliability of service, historical accuracy, etc. I did not notice a review of their products on the reviews page.

Their home page:
http://www.bractea.freha.pl/

To seed the conversation, here are some links to the stuff I found most impressive:

A nice collection of ballock and baselard daggers here:
http://www.bractea.freha.pl/knives.html

Some nice workmanship on scabbards and belts here (I really like the cross-hatched leatherwork and brass fittings on the first example):

Some nice belts (leatherwork, embroidery, fittings):
http://www.bractea.freha.pl/belts.html

Bags:

Some very nice breast/back plates and coats of plates:

Thanks to anyone who can help,

-Paul

Seen them.

Been curious about them.

Have not tried doing business with them.

Yet.

Some of our European members probably have, or at least should know more about them.

I've been in contact, placed an order, received e-mails and now--nothing. i'm not ready to be angry yet--but I'm a little concerned, so I'd love to hear form anyone else out there doing business with them. My last comms were August 17th, 2011. Anyone else?

I've ordered belt fittings from them previously. The order took some time to finish due to the parts not being in stock, and e-mail communication was somewhat slow at times, but I got my stuff on time - and the quality was excellent.
