I had a look at this sword at the TORM and I'm not sure on the quality of the blade, it seems to have an inbuilt weakness with the outer fullers being that if the blade burs you'll be sharpening down to a narrow edge, that and the fact that these swords (if they are made by the same people who do th...

I'd actually second Kovex as well, they make fine blades.

but Armour Class is a solid bet for a good sword

I don't own one of theirs but its the one company i recomend when taking new combatants shopping

I personally use Heron Armouries wonderful blades but a bit more expensive

I'd be more inclined to go for a more reputed swordsmith first

a good starting point is armourclass

they make very good quality weapons at reasonable prices

From what I could find out about Mr Barnetts they are made from EN45 Stainless Steel

but thats about it

depth perceptioon is easy to acheive using darker colours the actual ability to get something to curve away from you is harder to do to me the thin line down the centre of those helmets represents the curve of the helmet not a hard ridge so as craig was saying they indeed look like they are wearing ...

Marcus

while your ideas are good ones there are a number of problems

1 you need volenteers to portray the roles

2 you need everybody else to acknowledge that they are there, nothing like a provost getting told to F* Off and stop being a T* by a group of rowdy campers
