We are introducing our newest item today! It is the Leeds Castle Sword a Type XVIIIc based on the piece on display at the RA in Leeds and property of the Leeds Castle Foundation. It's one of the large wide bladed swords that came out of the St Irene Arsenal at the turn of the 19th Century. This style of sword has been popular for our custom orders for a while so we decided to do one as a regular item. Check out details here in today's blog post. We are also having a contest which will have the first production model of this sword as its prize! You can get all the info on that here the contest will be through Sept and everyone will get a chance to vote on the winner so tell all your friends to vote.

We hope this brightens up these tough times a bit and people enjoy putting together their entry!



Also remember if you enjoy going to Renaissance Fairs or Reenactment Events to check in with those artists you would patronize. Many of them rely on these events for part or most of their livelihood and their cancellation can be difficult to adjust to.
Here are two online spots for the Minnesota show to check out
MINNESOTA ONLINE RENAISSANCE MARKET SQUARE and Friends of Minnesota Renaissance Artisans and Shops Facebook Group

Be happy, be healthy, be a force for good!

Joke's on you, we all have plenty of practice explaining to our spouses why we absolutely need to have exactly this particular sword, whichever sword we are talking about.

That being said, I absolutely plan to submit an entry, because I most definitely need this particular sword in my collection.

Just one question: is the contest open to international participation?

We have our finalist for the Leeds Castle Sword Giveaway. We had a bunch of great entries and it was very difficult choosing the group to vote on. So difficult we picked 13 instead of ten so passing the buck a bit and having everyone help pick the winner from this group, even though all the entries were excellent.

Click Here and vote for your favorite videos on youtube we will gauge the winner by the most likes on the video at midnight on the 27th.


Thank you to all the folks that participate. We hope you enjoy the videos and had fun making them.
