That is a really lovely Sallet, you have bought some real quality pieces in 2013 Griff 8-)

You are so lucky, from what I hear about Master M, it's not only whether you can afford him, and his waiting list etc. it's whether he likes you enough to be bothered making you something :lol:

Kind of but armouring isn't his main work, its more a passion so if there is something you wanted that he'd be interested in doing then he'd step up to the plate. There are a few other armourers of similar quality around the world who are in the same boat, talented gits!

Sadly Emrys is on a hiatus at the moment due to other pressures and not having a workshop. Big shame. But if you suddenly wanted an embossed Negroli parade helmet he'd probably go and sort a workshop out! Repouse is to on his list

Negroli Parade helmet, now we're talking :thumbup: 8-) Would need a BIG wallet for a project like that.

I have heard that repeated Repousse work is very hard on the elbow tendons of the armourer and they have to be very careful not to overdo this type of metalworking, to avoid permanent injury :(
