Re: The Elves! The elves! What are we going to do with the Elves!

There are reported accounts of silk being worn to assist in the removal of arrows. It appears that while the silk is cut resistant it doesn't stop the penetration of arrows so the surgeon would simply gather the silk around the arrow and pull the arrow out without fear of the arrow head breaking off...

Then I put it and the maille in a large heavy bank money sack. I tied one end with some slack over a tree limb and the other end tied with th...

Re: Winter 2017 Now Available!

If you want a single piece rivet that will work well take a short/thick flat headed nails. Cut them down to about 1/2" to 3/4" depending on what the thickness of the material you're riveting. Then using a fine hack saw cut them down the center vertically from the non head end. Leave approx...

Re: Some new cooking stuff at MRL

I do remember seeing a picture of a Roman folding frying pan. I don't have a pic so I can't say if it's similar or not.
