Re: officers boots

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police still use the Srathconer boot. Our lad found his pair in a army surplus type shop in Canada while we were on holiday. Cost him about £100 they were brand new. Can try and find the shop if you want to try. With postage to Europe I don't think it would be to bad?

Re: Proto-Mortuary and Basket Hilt pics (not for sale)

You should consider going into business. Swords for the 17th century which are good are few and far between. At a recent event I did not see one sword seller in the traders row. I think demand is there for a simple tuck at a fair price. It needs doing!

Swords

Why is there a lack of sword makers for the 17th century? Only seem to be one or two that make battlefield safe weopons. Also why are they more expensive in comparisson to other periods? I would like to hear what others have to say, Or if you do make for a other period could you make for the 17th Ce...

Only found this today but had heared that Steve had passed away. We are sorry to have missed his funeral.
