Making more arrows, don’t have the money to buy horn plates for the nocks so I’m going to use some old loyalty cards and maybe try pvc and see if that works.

My Father’s finished axe on the right.
I bought the head from a friend of mine Ulf Eriksson, a Swedish Australian blacksmith who has an Etsy store here:

For most of my sharp stuff I go to him, with the exception of my sharp sword and spear as he doesn’t do those…yet…

He made my seax and my axe seen on the left.

Maybe one day I’ll be able to convince him to make a langseax like the one I use in combat.

Our next market in Norway will be having Einar Selvik of Wardruna play at the event! Who knew vending your wares in a viking village at the end of a Fjord could get any better! Comment below what your favorite Wardruna song is! Mine is Helvegen.

I feel I may have made a mistake…

So, for those who’ve known my blog for a while, you know that I’m an archer.

For those who didn’t, there you go.

My mistake might have been that I just bought 12 carbon arrows with screw points from eBay for cheap with free shipping. Like a dozen for maybe AU$26.

My next mistake was, I bought some larp arrow tips, like the big foam ones not the golf ball ones, for about AU$45-50 with free shipping.

I can’t remember the exact amount off the top of my head, but the point is that if they all fit into each other, I’ll have subverted the 6 for $80 larp arrow problem.

The reason I’m getting this shit is because, I went to the Armidale gathering this year at the end of March, it’s held in a pine forest, now as a reenactor Ive currently only got access to padded javelins as a ranged weapon, however if I can get enough people ok with me using these arrows in combat, while using the same rule set for Non-combatant peltasts, I can make a significant difference to my side, more so than with just a sword and shield.

So stay tuned.
