Hi, these are the first and only staffs in my collection, they feel really nice. Although the spear looks a little bit large and the roncone does seem smaller the proportions were very well met.

Here are a few impressions, guard duty in the yard, awaiting the charge and behind the shield (this is an oval tabulaccio, that I am working on at the moment).

Indeed it would, but this is the project for next year. This year I started growing the vegetables. The previous owner of the garden didn´t do anything for years.

Although, I must admit, the feel is nice when walking around bare footed on the this "lawn styled moss".

Leave it as moss. If you were in Japan that would be more than acceptable.


I like moss. It's fluffy.

I am a snob and I am proud of it but I also like a good poo joke every now and then too.

It needs maille.

This is not me being nit-picky. That is the only thing I can say about it that I think is not quite perfect.
Slowly realizing just how far is still to go.

Yeah. it needs maille. And I HAVE maille. Unfortunately the actual Aketon /Arming Doublet thing is too thick to allow maille below the very narrow waisted breat and fauld. :cry:
But I have a thinner version in order. Hope this will work then.
