Re: Camp cleaver(food prep)

Is your whole group in your area? Sounds like a good number of you are local to each other.

Nice work!

In Search of Pre-Made Body Linens

I'm working on a kit for my wife, and am admittedly (and unashamedly) looking for a shortcut. I need a smock/chemise/whatever in linen with a non-gathered neckline. Preferably a natural linen, not bleached. Don't really care if it's scooped or a keyhole, and I don't care if it's tastefully machine-s...

Re: Free to Good Home- anyone who can heat treat long blades

Pete, I may have a taker in the form of a friend who's a few years' into Smithing that could use this sort of project, though he's not a forum member. Thoughts/preferences?

Re: A Week in Scotland

Your kit improvements between last year and this year have made a noticeable difference. Really coming together. The cloak+hood+overcote you have going on look VERY dwarven. Well done, and looks like a great time!

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

The nocking point may not be perfectly historical, but years ago here on the forum we were discussing this and I was much faster because I could use the heel of my palm to locate the string and the nocking point to keep the arrow perpendicular, all without having to take my eyes off the target like ...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

Lol, I have zero experience with a thumb release. Aaanywho, here we are. I wanted to do this in full kit, but we'll have to settle for my new wool tunic and moderns below for time constraints. Still, I've got a full tinderbox and a snapsack with all my hard kit for a standard trek in it, so this is ...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

I intended to take care of this today, but I may need an extension through tomorrow. I cut my finger (punctured, really...six holes in a line) with an arborist handsaw (a razor, really) right where my bowstring rests, and if I shoot it will likely jumpstart some profuse bleeding. Need to whip up a t...

Re: Woodland archery - what's the longest shot you get?

On horse or on foot once mobility is lost and range is closed against dedicated infantry, archers are practically speaking, doomed. Much like the one significant weakness inherent in the Spear, actually. Once the effective range and standoffish characteristics have been passed and the spearman forc...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

As for "not catching the bowstring on the sword pommel"...this is a basic skill we oughta have figured out, so I don't see it as a question of "Should we do this", but rather "We'd darned well better be able to do this."
