Re: concerning cloaks...

Welcome! I'll approach the question about treating it, such as making it oilcloth. To be direct...don't. Oilcloth is a horrifically non-breathable material, and really doesn't do well as a garment. I PROMISE your entire back would be soaked with sweat even with temps in the 60's after walking a shor...

Re: Current thoughts on "Ranger" boots?

It's funny...the more I looked at them, the more I thought "Surely Armstreet could accommodate a small custom request..?" so I went and looked up that model to get a closer look, and was pleasantly reminded that you're not new to this game at all.

Re: Current thoughts on "Ranger" boots?

I suppose we could cook something up. Denim for contrast. http://i68.tinypic.com/ravoxz.jpg http://i64.tinypic.com/qx2lvk.jpg If you’ll note, the left outer “flap” is much wider than that on the right...it will fold all the way across the shin, over the tongue, and cinch snug on the right-hand-side,...

Re: Current thoughts on "Ranger" boots?

Yes, I made mine from scratch, but they actually have a lot of elements from the list you're after for your own. Mine are flap-fronted much like what you pictured, though my "tongue" as we call them nowadays is on the interior, so when I overlap my two 'ends' to lace them up, it is covered...

Re: 3rd Age longsword scabbard

Very nice work on that, Ursus. Came together beautifully.

I'm curious what your complaints are with the byknife handle. It looks pretty cool to me, and the overall design is impressive. Comfort issues?

Re: Rainy day ranging

That's a pretty neat solution for arrow stowage. The whole thing looks great...nice little bits of brilliance throughout.

Re: knife sheath attatchments - what's your favorite?

Yes, I don't think a scabbard mount is gonna work for me, handy as it sounds. And the small of my back is taken up with a needwallet (which I need to remake at some point: I want it to be a bit taller and narrower so as to properly hold a cordial bottle) I’m not trying to sway you in any particular...

Re: knife sheath attatchments - what's your favorite?

There’s just something appealing about having a fine tool attached to my main weapon. ...and gosh, doesn't it draw naturally?! I know you think things through in a very martial mindset...you MUST be enamored with how intuitively your hand finds it. Elleth...not sure what to tell you. That knife loo...

Re: New Toy!

The Bristol is DEFINITELY an arming sword. The fishtail leaves a bit of extra room, but it really floats plenty nicely to be used in one hand.

That's the one I keep forgetting to pick up!

Just snagged a copy of Kullervo, which I expect to be fun and disappointing all at once (because there's no ending)...but the flora keeps escaping me.
