Facebook Page and Blog Announcement!
« on: 2017-04-24, 02:07:50 »
Brethren, I want to make this announcement.

Some of you have received an invitation to like a page on facebook called "The Jersey Knyght."

The answer is simple, I have decided to create a page to promote the ideal of Chivalry and to get my thoughts on HEMA and Knighthood out there.

Take a look at the Blog post which I wrote out which outlines my purpose and vision. 

Thus far, the page has received 16 likes, which I am surprised. 

Let me know what you think.  https://www.facebook.com/thejerseyknyght/

Unfortunately I am not on Facebook as I find it to be very un-chivalrous. However, perhaps your page will be a beacon of light for some people.

Everyone!  I am glad that some of you are happy with the news.

Jason: no.  I was wearing the late 14th Century Gambeson that I ordered from KoA.

Oh ok. How do you like it? I don't see too many people wearing more traditionally patterned gambesons anymore. It adds diversity and I like that not everyone is clad in complete black.

The gambeson feels great when moving about and it is thick enough to absorb blows but not enough for thrusts.  However this should not detract from its functionality.  Overall I am satisfied with the gambeson and Koa has a good price on it.
