Wonderful site
« on: February 05, 2009, 11:38:20 PM »
Not sure how many of you have this site bookmarked. I stumbed on it as I was surfing for Celtic Swords. I was looking for the unusual and battle ready. Toki and I both love swords and figure if we want to have good steel, it might as well be battle ready. This site has everything from ancients to early 18th century. They een have cannons full sized.

They carry housewares, clothing, jewelery, you name it, they have a lot.

So here is the link and enjoy. Oh it's in the Cech Republic

Thanks for posting this! it looks like a great site.

Has anyone bought anything from them? Is the stuff as good as it looks on the website?

I have not personally bought from them, but have known of them for years.  The authenticity of items vary so you might want to research a particular item before buying, but everything I have seen on them is that they make good products.  I will qualify this with the fact that I have come across them amongst the Roman Reenacting community specifically.  Their early Roman and Celtic shields and bosses appear to be extremely good quality and authentic in my opinion.  I haven't looked at the other cultures as much since I make a lot of my own armor.

Edit:  After looking at some of the helmets and other items, there is a great disparity amongst accuracy from one piece to the next so I would simply qualify my above statements with an emphasis on researching the specific time period or culture before buying as with anything IF you care about accuracy.  Otherwise, enjoy.

If any of you want some helmets to drool over, check out this site and specifically the Vendel Helmets.
Escher, feel free to add that one to the armor resources too.  I have heard nothing but rave reviews of his work on myarmoury.
