Location:
Salt Lake City, UT (though moving to Australia later this year)
Interests:
Medival text Illumination (specifically celtic)
Occupation:
Customer Service Manager
Favorite Swords:
For looks, nothing beats an over the top, larger than nessesary battle-axe, but for actual use, I'd have to go with a bastard sword with an extra large pommel or solid steel hilt for better balance.
Swordsmanship Style Practiced:
Looking to learn classic shao-lin kung fu weapon training (though i hear escrima to be superior in modern times), but very interested in 2 handed european weapons (poleax, bastard sword, pike, etc.)
