Much of our impression is 15th/ early 16th Century....
We would like to source weapons and kit for later 16th C, Desmond rebellions.

...attempting to attach picture of Moi... in a current version of kit.

Nope...the site didn't like it as it exceeded 256 KB
Any how, I wanted to show the Manning Imperial Irish Bascinet, Claymore Armoury Gallowglass axe, and a swell cotun. Will try again.

Jeff does your group have a website?

Kevin;

We haven't put up a website yet, but we do talk to each other on our Yahoo discussion group "Caislean na Cnamha." The images I was trying to send are in the group's Photos section. I wonder, are you the customer that Cherilyn at Manning mentioned to me earlier this week? If so, she may be sending you the same images.

I am the one who resembles an armored garden gnome.

Your sword is Windlass's "Irish Two Hander" discontinued some years back, based upon the sword depicted in Durer's "War Men of Ireland."
Would love to compare notes on Galloglas impression building;

I can't believe these swords are now so cheap, I paid a lot more for mine, and it is the same blade. (The usual seller of these in the States dropped this type of blade a several years ago, so I think this seller picked up the 'over stock'). Windlass makes some really decent blades, butt $99.00 for one of theses? Get one before they are gone!

Greetings to all:

Has anyone else procured one of Baltimore Knife & Sword's Gallowglass axes? I ordered two, received in April of this year. Mine are very nicely made, well balanced. I didn't go for their "decorated" version.
