    True ! Pen is much mightier ! With it Mary can cancel all the credit cards, debit cards etc, She can also close an account and freeze all deposits so there is nothing left just to stab yourself with a sword ! :lol:

    In the most recent season of The Handmaid's Tale, one of the handmaids stabbed a Commander to death with a pen.

    Interesting, I was under the impression Darksword had resolved their quality control issues.
    What do you know about Del Tin? I've had my eye on one of their migration period swords.

    Also, neat fighting videos!

    Darksword: I know about their old QA problems, I don't really know if they have fixed them completely by now.
    If you read in swords forums you always get the odd complain.
    Del Tin: never tried myself, I know only what I read about them (a bit heavier than needed but good quality).

    Personally I think that a lot depends on where you are (Europe or America) and what you are looking for (e.g. blunt o sharp, HEMA or SCA or wallhangers, etc.).
    I am a HEMA pratictioner (as evident from my videos) so that's what I mostly look for and like many of my friends here in Europe we purchase our "tools" directly from manufacturers.

    Some example:

    https://www.regenyei.com/swords.php
    A mainstaple of HEMA world in Europe, and covers some other types too (including sharps and custom).

    https://www.facebook.com/pg/SIGIforge/photos/?ref=page_internal
    https://kvetun-armoury.com
    SIGI forge by Martin Fabian and Kevtun Armoury are the best place for swords for competition

    If you look for something that is really functional, perfectly reproducing original in museums, and beautiful you can't go wrong with:
    http://artofswordmaking.com
    http://sulowskiswords.com
    https://www.sword-elgur.com

    I know the first one and he routinely collaborate with museums to study and reproduce medieval swords (publishing a lot of his findings too).
    Prices for these 3 are high but also their quality (they mostly do custom work).
    Example:
    http://artofswordmaking.com/gallery/longsword-14/15thc
    This is my sharp custom longsword, a work of deadly beauty.
    Custom build for aesthetic and fitting my specific technical requirements (mostly proportion to my body and preferred techniques).
    As a note the maker rejected a couple of my suggestions because they were anachronistic to the historical type.

    Yeah @Takhisis we want it ! We have x-mas emoticons and we're not affraid to use them ! :xmas: :snowlaugh:

    Google graphics search yields some interesting results though , according to google Takhisis is either a dog, an incredibly sexy lady or multi headed dragon :D (my imagination is already running rampant) Maybe Takhisis is all those thing at once ? A sexy multiheaded dragon-dog ! :D

    That is a bold, yet cohesively designed bathroom. Very high marks! And a cool shirt to boot.
