Well... generally speaking... most of the time: yes... as Matt Easton would say...
I have seen many of his great videos!
Yeah. His channel is great indeed! Entertaining and informative.
Okay I feel like since the last one I posted was so dang long ago its about time I posted an updated photo, a rare image of me in public
Real chain mail!
Heck yeah! Made it myself! a full ten pounds of delicious galvanized steel
Great picture. What kind of event was this at? Looks like a bunch of woodworking creations in the background!
That is amazing! You did a fantastic job. How long did it take you to make it?
@NIGHTBRINGER I was at the local sci-fi/fantasy convention there is a lil old lady there who makes sculpture puzzle displays they are A+ gonna buy one for the boyfriend soon, actually I have a nice picture of that skaven loving weirdo somewhere
It took me...roughly 40 hours on the chain mail? I think a lil more since I had to work on it at odd hours
Sounds like a fun convention!
It was definitely worth the time you invested in it!
Chainmail is heavy but it looks cool. Even cooler if self-made. Well done!
But note: it protects against cutting and chopping but can be very well thrusted through... so be aware of the pointy end...
That’s when you want riveted chainmaille and smaller rings riveted is good against arrows but it vastly more time consuming to make
I see you're not a novice when it comes to the art of chainmail!
I have a friend who does chainmail. And scale mail. She made a dragon themed belly dancing outfit including a scale mail bra
Chainmail vs. Plate and Scale and so on is a very interesting topic since all if them have their advantages and disadvantages.
I watched a few videos on that topic lately (I am a bit interested in HEMA, and there are some nice Youtubers on that topic such as Skallagrim, Metatron and Scholagladiatoria)
and it is amazing how people in former times were aware and tried to work around those problems by tweaking and combining them.
