    $175 + shipping for the whole lot

    Bought this for a renaissance faire this past October. I only wore it for about 3 or 4 hours total. It's all in mint/like new condition, except for the tunic, which has a small grease stain at the bottom of the upper right quarter.
    • Full chainmail with coif (hood), stitched in the 4-in-1 pattern, stainless steel links.
    • Hand-forged "sugarloaf" helmet, 18 ga. steel with brass accents, hand-riveted, hand-made, etc.
    • Full-length tunic, quartered black-and-white, cotton
    • Claymore with sheath and belt
    • Fiberglass shield (made by yours truly), painted to match the tunic
    • Black vinyl gloves

    It fits anyone up to a size 44 chest. I'm tall and skinny, so it fits me just fine. I'm at school right now, but I'll get some pics up ASAP.

  10. I guess ill give a free bump with this...

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: Who goes there?
    King Arthur: It is I, Arthur, son of Uther Pendragon, from the castle of Camelot. King of the Britons, defeater of the Saxons, Sovereign of all England!
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: Pull the other one!
    King Arthur: I am, and this is my trusty servant Patsy. We have ridden the length and breadth of the land in search of knights who will join me in my court at Camelot. I must speak with your lord and master.
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: What? Ridden on a horse?
    King Arthur: Yes!
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: You're using coconuts!
    King Arthur: What?
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: You've got two empty halves of coconut and you're bangin' 'em together.
    King Arthur: So? We have ridden since the snows of winter covered this land, through the kingdom of Mercia, through...
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: Where'd you get the coconuts?
    King Arthur: We found them.
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: Found them? In Mercia? The coconut's tropical!
    King Arthur: What do you mean?
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: Well, this is a temperate zone
    King Arthur: The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin or the plover may seek warmer climes in winter, yet these are not strangers to our land?
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?
    King Arthur: Not at all. They could be carried.
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: What? A swallow carrying a coconut?
    King Arthur: It could grip it by the husk!
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.
    King Arthur: Well, it doesn't matter. Will you go and tell your master that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here?
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: Listen. In order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings forty-three times every second, right?
    King Arthur: Please!
    1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: Am I right?

    I would love to wear that at a show though...It would shine brilliantly in the lights...

    It is indeed high quality stuff. It's all hand-made here in the USA -- none of that Chinese import stuff. The sword is Pakistani, though. Shipping would be a bit complicated as I would have to ship it all in 3 seperate packages, and that's only because to ship it all would require a box big enough to accomodate the width of the shield and length of the sword. Factor in the weight of all this gear (60 pounds), and you've got an oversized package that would be billed as 90 pounds and cost ~$120 to ship.

    EDIT:
    Ran some sample UPS Ground quotes to ZIP 92630 (my hometown - El Toro, CA).
    Shield (oversized, billed as 30 pounds ~$30; helm and mail ~$40; sword, gloves, tunic ~$18.
