Well, my Albion Knight is returning to New Glarus. The recent change in the weather resulted in manufacturer's defect in the grip becoming a big issue. The grip squeaks and shifts when handled. Fortunately, Albion is going to put a new grip on it. Unfortunately, I found out that I was overcharged for the sword. I used the invoice paperwork that I had left in the sleeve in the box to write down the problem. I hadn't really looked at the paperwork until now, but I realized that they never deducted the 10% armed forces active duty/retiree/veteran's discount. Word to the wise, look the paperwork over when you get something like that. Ah well.
The Round Table / Facebook Page and Blog Announcement!

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/

Welcome! I have a lot of friends who do cosplay who I keep encouraging to look at our very own Ian's Knyght Errant videos to see how armor functions.
The Sallyport / C2E2

One of the premier events of fandom occurs this weekend in Chicago called C2E2. Think comic con meets anime, cosplay, and various other genres.

The wife and I went and here is my report.

A WONDERFUL King Arthur with squire following with coconuts. They galloped everywhere! Shouts of " I didn't vote for you" and " what kind of swallow?" Could be heard as he approached.

A younger cosplayer had done himself up as the wizard Tim. I of course yelled " Hi Tim" and he yelled back " you know me!! YES!!!" It's a sad day when the youth do not know who Tim is and knights who say Ni.

The local sword fighting group from Chicago was on scene. Had a wonderful talk with them and signed up for a raffle of a pretty nice sword ( not sure the make, too many people roaming about and didn't want to ask to get a closer look) they had a great helm, pig face bassinet and various other armor and swords laid out for display.

Across from them was the poly sword people. Both of these tables caused a huge traffic jam for that aisle. It was good to see the amount of interest generated by both.

The one couple cosplay that intrigued me was a knight and his lady. He had a pretty good kit on, but I couldn't get close to him to ask his interest as it was a madhouse in that area. Then we never crossed paths again ( maybe next year)

Once I get the kit going I will for sure go in it.  Then I can stand next to the Medieval Times guys and compare armor 😜
