    We (the members of this site and I) have put together a list of links, both internal (MAP links) and external (outside MAP). The external links have previously been posted by MAP members, or are their own web-sites that have information about weapons or weapons arts, or videos of the weapons in action, and the internal links are here so that newer members can resurrect threads without making their own asking the same questions, thus saving the inevitable "Its been done before!" If anyone has any links they feel should be added, feel free to post below with them and they may one day appear in a revised post :)

    (While there is an overlap between this forum and many of the Styles forums, please keep links appropriate, such as FMA links in that forum)

    Please place the site of The Association for Renaissance Martial Arts (ARMA) in the
    External (off MAP) – Information etc Links section of your list. The URL to the ARMA site is "www.thearma.org".

    Thank you,

    Your post here puts the site on the list :)

    Just need to post the URL, people will see it, and I might review the list in 6-8 months (as I did with this) and put it in the main post :)

    www.albion-swords.com makes what are perhaps some of the most accurate replicas of European swords. They employ master swordsmith Peter Johnsson to design their weapons. I have an Agincourt, and an Earl on order. Truly fine weapons.

    Best regards,
