    Old Angus Trim Archives

    Hi Folk

    Strictly for educational purposes and personal curiousity, there is an immense amount of data just about anyone can gather for their own use. It has recently been noted that what some folk list as a directory and gallery of Gus swords has been presented on various sites over the years. I was curious about the sword I had bought back in the fall of 2003 and got to be thinking about the early All Saints pages.

    All is not lost folk, as there is Archive.org to retrieve some of these old pages. This can be a little clunky to navigate at times but plug in an old bookmark and off you go.

    http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://...ntsblades.com/

    A bit of time and patience would probably find just about any of the old sites to view. In the cases of Gus' swords, the forum here and discussion on several venues is still quite available. Some new to the histories might care to do some reading as much as just wondering about the past.

    Incidentally, I had collected a file off of one of the sites or another. Remember, there were lots of sites and models over the years. Honestly, I'd love to find the old Albion pages for several of the old articles and projections from the east coast days. Christian's stuff as well can probably be found the same ways. Don't forget to put one's own wayback cap on. Sites like Dancing Giant comes to mind.

    Cheers

    Hotspur; other old Gus and other site bookmarks are welcome to join suggestion here. Gosh, there were three or four Gus sword pages just of his, aside from half a dozen others

    Do note that the recent Angus Trim bookmark will work with Archive dot org

    Thanks for posting this, Glen. I enjoy perusing all of Gus' cool blades through the years.

    The old http://web.archive.org/web/200603282.../retailers.htm is still fairly archived as well.

    Pasting www.christianfletcher.com in there offers some of his really old pages and lists that will overlap with the first All Saints site.

    Cheers

    Hotspur; the front page of the 2008 update to Angus Trim Direct has pretty well made it clear what the ordering process should be if looking for Gus stuff
