Haha meat and mutton, I must consume my own body weight in meat every week, I'm 6ft 1 and weigh 11 stone, not really a heavy weight champion. Being thin doesn't make weak though I can carry lots of kit and weight just fine, Just not large helmets

Whats the gdfb one? the one I'm selling is gdfb, Ive been offered a good one from Forge of Svan custom to fit. However I need to sell my current helm to purchase that one

If anyone wants some plate pieces, I have the following:
1.) A full-set of 18-gauge mild steel legs with fish-tail poleyns, front greaves, brown leather straps/brass hardware, NEVER used for fighting. (Late 14-15th century)
2.) One 18-gauge mild steel plate gorget (Front & back pieces) with black leather straps w/ nickel hardware & rivoted straps for spaulders. WORN for renfaire events & fighting but GOOD condition. (14-15th century)
3.) One full-set of 16 or 18-gauge mild steel arms w/ soup-can style elbow guards (14th-15th century). USED in SCA heavy combat. Some slight wear (sword dents) but good for starter kit or fighting.
4.) One set of single rivoted 16 or 18-gauge mild steel Gothic spaulders; Triple lames with brown leather straps w/ brass hardware. NEVER used for fighting (Late 14th-15th century)
5.) One 14-gauge Pembridge-style mild steel helmet; USED in SCA heavy combat. Some damage but good for starter kit; NO Liner.
Anyone interested, I'll sell all for $300.00 (plus S&H) or piece by piece. I'll take pics & post for any interested. Let me know.

Sure. Let me see if I can post the photos. This helmet is really good protection & has been used in heavy steel fighting. It has taken some serious hits but held up.

Have any of you, my knightly brothers? got a 13th century sword for sale? even if its a bit worn and battered im looking for something I can just spar with, not fussed if its taken a beating.

I made my own sword scabbard combo today and need a sword to put in it. I made it using a double belt I had which was far to big for me. I cut the buckle and strap off and the other long belt bit off and wrapped them round the scabbard, glued and sewed them on and then painted the scabbard red, the result is here, Need to make or find a chape for it, I'm bidding on a real metal detecting find one on ebay but think it might be slightly past it...

Just got to find the sword to go with it! lol

Hey great! Tailoring the mail will definitely help make it more comfortable. It's tedious, but really helps.

looking real good there!
also, before you tailor your mail, decide if you wish to wear a gambeson/aketon on underneath it.  Definitely get that before you tailor the mail, they take up a lot of room ;)

if that's been covered, forgive and forget it :D

nice to see another early-period recreation.  Always nice to see a fellow fan of the "chain gang"
