These Armor Legs are made of 16 gauge steel and are polished to a brilliant sheen.
They are surprisingly comfortable and are built to fit the rest of us that are not built like Conan. The real bonus is that they fit a wide range of sizes from a 30″ to 34″ pants inseam and a variety of body builds.
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.
Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery.
We would all do well to remember what Memorial Day means amidst the parties, BBQs, and sales events sure to be all around us this weekend. Take a few minutes out of your day to think about and remember all those who died in service of our great country.
Enjoy your long weekend, have fun, be safe, and thank a veteran.
“I’m just now learning about collecting medieval swords. I’m not sure what I should buy as my first sword. The longsword looks great, but it looks so long and hard to hold. I’m not sure I could handle it, and I want to learn how to use the medieval swords I collect. I might try a backsword as my first purchase, since they still look dangerous but seem easier to handle.
Ultimately, the sword I pick will have to look good in my home as it will be a display piece as well. I might put it over my mantel, but it would also look good on the wall downstairs. Of course, if I turn this into a real hobby and collect them like I want to, I can always get a floor fan display that will hold all my swords. Problem is, where will that look good? I may cap my ‘collection’ at two or three swords. That way I can strategically place them throughout my home so they add to the overall decor.”
So here are a few things I’d like to add for you to consider:
What style of combat interests you most?
If you’re trying to match existing decor, you can most likely find a sword that will fit.
Think about learning to use a sword by practicing with a wooden sword first, then once you’re comfortable buy a real sword.
Are you looking for a sword you can use in a practical way? You’ll need to buy a sword that is designed for your intended uses not just for display.
Be sure you know how to take care of your sword. Different types require different methods of maintenance.
Think about these things when buying your swords. If you have any questions about sword buying I’m here to help.
