I really like seeing these complex guards from so many different angles: Surprising how different these guards look from difference angles.

These are often shown only from a very limited side view and usually the ring side: There is so much 3 Dimensionality that short of actually handling one it takes all these angles to understand the shapes of the guards.

Good articles Bill. Big Grin You have been busy. Wink Laughing Out Loud

Well done, Bill. You did all the heavy lifting for this update, I see. I really like that Milanese rapier.

More terrific reviews. I didn't even read these until today, I could have sworn I had checked on Monday.

A small typo in the Darkwood review;

know today as single time counterattacks. This concept means


Should be known, no know. Maybe a hyphen in counter-attacks. Webster would approve ;)

That Darkwood also offers finer finishes at cost, is probably common knowledge to many but might have warranted mention. Enclusion of the site url answers that anyway. Minor quibble.

Thanks for these insights on current and possible offerings.

Cheers and thanks for the reading material. I don't own many skinny swords but like the style.

Thanks Glen! Please private message me any corrections or whatever. It seems like a more appropriate means of communication than sharing it with the world and hoping the single person who can actually make the change will read it Happy Wink
