Hi Johannes,

I think this list could be much more helpful, if the retailers/makers are organized in some categories, for example the average quality of their products. Assuming some maker as a standard lets say Windlass Steelcrafts, one can organize it by "lower", "similar to", and "better than" categories. I understand that this is largely subjective, and it may seem easier to do than it is, but it will certainly add a completely different browsing experience. Another way of organizing this list is to separate the makers of original armor and weapons from those that simply distribute somebody elses stuff (nothing wrong with that). This comes from the experience that many, many sites simply retail low end products, and I have seen all I want to see from SAC Iberia and Valiant Armoury.

Most of the people in this forum know the where the "good" stuff comes from, and you have included some of those manufacturers. So here is the question I ask my self: If I know where to get the stuff I need, why should I waste my time at questionable/unknown websites, where finding things that I like is possible but less likely? A sincere recommendation of a manufacturer makes me adopt a different attitude towards browsing their website, i.e. I no longer consider it a waste of time, and vise versa.

This does not mean that the list you provided is not helpful, but that it could be much, much more helpful with a short description of what is/or isn't on each of those web-sites. Should you sit down and do that ? If you have purchased stuff from these websites and you can recommend them / or not then maybe worth your while, otherwise do not bother.

Still a decent list that I personally have to explore some more



Edited: When I wrote this post I thought that it was for BOTH Weapons and Armor. Now I read it MORE CAREFULLY and realized that I was wrong. Have that in mind if you find what I said more or less pointless. Big Grin

Well I know that most if not all of these people are not supplyers of someone else's work but their own (that was the key thing I was looking at when I got these links). When I was making these links I didn't realy give any thought to the swords these people sell, only the armour. I don't realy know what quality these poeple have, but I have asked questions and looked around. If you live in the US and you want armour then go to Illusion Armoring, Albion Armours, or Arms and Armour (though Illusion Armoring is very inexpensive dont let these low prices fool you on the quality and his customer service though. He has excelent quality and the customer service is great). Now if you live in Canada though then I can recommend Truehearth Armoury and Valintine Armoury of which both have good customer service (note that even though Truehearth Armoury might not have good looking armour I am quite shure that it will last, and both smiths will gladly do any custom projects). And also note that I said that these links are to help you find a smith that suits your style and buget, or else I would have just posted Albion Armours, Arms and Armour, Illusion armoring, Truehearth armory, and Valintine Armoury's links.
