Busy, busy couple of months!
We will be leaving tomorrow morning for Great Western War in CA. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
We will be returning to the shop October 14.
All orders that come in during our absence will be processed and shipped as soon as we return, in the order in which they were received.
It was great seeing everyone at Pennsic this year.
We are still busy working through the returning inventory and are working on updating the stock levels on the website. Please be patient with us. If you have any questions on if we have something in stock, please don't hesitate to call.
We have revised our custom shield order pages. They now have more options and you will no longer have to order your shield basket or boss separately. We hope this will make your shield buying experience a little easier. As always, if you have any questions please call or email.
Our shipment of Low-Pro Thrusting Tips arrived while we were away, as did the Mandrake Armoury Axe Heads. We ran out of amost of the EVA foam sizes, but put our order while we were on the road so should have it back in stock next week.
Please Read: We have made some adjustments to how the website uses the shipping calculator, so rates should be a little closer to actuality; at least for small packages. We are still working through developing a rate table for larger packages, like shields and helmets. Due to the huge variation in shield sizes this will take some time. Please bear with us and remember that we charge the actual retail shipping rate plus a small handling fee. Fee rates vary depending on the item(s) being shipped. Please review our Shipping and Returns page for more information.
Even with our changes, the shipping rates in the USPS rate calculator do not take into consideration if an item can go flat rate or not. We always use the most cost-effective method. Usual shipping cost for a thrusting tip is around $8.75 via Priority Mail, not the $14 or so the calculator will quote.
We thank you for your continued patronage and support and wish you all the best 2013 has to offer.

The Earl Marshal of the SCA has chosen the Mandrake Armory 2 Handed Thrusting Tip as the first legal 2" tip for use on fiberglass spears. It is important that you speak to your local group Marshal as to whether they will be legal in your area before you spend your hard-earned money. Some SCA Kingdoms may choose not to make these legal in their combat, so please be sure before you order something you may not be allowed to use.
