Sunday’s Grand Opening was a great success! Around 20 people including first timers, existing members and visitors from clubs far and wide. Here’s hoping our new year in a new hall sees us go from strength to strength! Photo credit: @franterminiello

First few exchanges after a holiday break, felt rusty so we were focused on movement and flow. #historicaleuropeanmartialarts @adamvorous

Reliks Swords & Knives Store (@reliksswords)

One thing we don't talk about enough is our #clothing and accessories. This is the #medieval #longbelt . Its made from a heavy thick top grain #leather and is adorned with polished and #antiqued brass accents. It is a historically accurate attire and is clothing grade like the rest of ouf medieval #garb . Like the #swords we carry, we aren't happy with cheap #costuming and offer heavy duty medieval clothing that is suitable for every day wear. Check out all our #periodclothing #belts #swordhangers and accessories at our #london store in #ontario #canada or internationally at reliks.com

Two new books to feed my HEMA study. Anyone got any more recommendations?

Ferrous Fox Metal Works (@ferrousfoxmetalworks)

I don't just do metal work. It's time to start training again. Brocoli and cabbage for lunch. Yummy.

More training daggers. Only this time, done on a lathe.
Doing it this way more closely resembles the original rondel daggers they're modelled after. I think I like then write a bit more than the previous, "2D", version.
The next step is to make a big that will allow me to make four or six of these in the time it took to make these two.
