Morning folks. We have initiated a blog on our website to describe some of our work, product and research in short descriptions and videos. It's a work in progress and we will be doing a bunch of different things so far we have posted up a variety of things from new features on existing pieces we make to brand new items. We will also cover some of our history as a company and how we do what we do. Check it out if interested. I will post periodic updates on this thread when we post things of interest to folks and we are always happy to answer questions.

Hi Chad

Yes in some form it will be available. We are continuing to add things and adjust as we sort out how things work for people and what they like or miss from the old site. We hope to also get to a point where we will have that indicated on the item pages. Its our busiest time of the year so we have a lot going on :-) and we will probably be working the site for a while yet to get everything where we would like.

We have a new blog post in our three part series on the points to consider when purchasing a training sword. In this post we look at hilt components like the guard and the grip. There are also a couple of new swords in our Special Offers section of the website (we use to call it the muster page). We hope to have a few more pieces up here over the next few days as well. Let us know if any of them need to be yours and we can set that up or you can just purchase online direct.

If you are in Michigan, Minnesota or Wisconsin we will be at three events this weekend. So if your able stop by at SparBQ VI, The Minnesota Renaissance Festival or the Bristol Renaissance Faire and check out some weapons and say HI!

Have a great day
Craig

Click here for link to some of our newer blog posts.

We do some comparison between wear on a period trainer and a modern version of the sword, look at the Schloss Erbach Sword, discuss some maintenance tips and todays post a look at the Black Prince Sword part 1!

We hope this keeps you from being productive today :-)

Edited to fix my stupid link mistake. Worried

This time of year we are out at events and fairs selling to the public. Well actually its much more an educational job than selling. We are trying to communicate the beauty, function and design of the original swords we replicate, the swords kind of sell themselves :-). Our post today on the blog starts a conversation about what is different between swords of the past and SLOs and what our approach to a sword entails.

We have a couple new blog posts up since my last post. Today we are announcing our Pumpkin Destruction Contest! A fun way to spread some Halloween joy with you’re A&A weapons! All we ask is for folks to be safe and have fun!

We also have a highlight post on our Towton Sword. One of our preferred cutting swords. Rondel Daggers have been a favorite of the shop for a long time, here we cover some pieces we have made in the past and some historical info on this interesting side arm. We also have a couple of one of rondels available on our Special Offers Page.

Our research is always ongoing and at times we are able to support and enhance others understanding and knowledge of history as well. Here we describe an exhibit we collaborated on oakeshott-post" target="_blank" class="postlink">Swords and the Secret Life of Books with the Wangensteen Historical Library at the University of Minnesota and and The Oakeshott Institute. bringing old swords, old books and The Princess Bride all together Happy
