Darkblade Website

Postby TimB » Thu Jan 27, 2011 8:01 pm

Hi Folks

If you've not heard of us I'm posting to tell you about our website Darkblade. We've been around one or two years now selling leather stuff we make ourselves and other bits(swords, clothing, etc) we buy in.

I'd just like to keep you informed of all the new stuff and special offers there are available. With that in mind our latest update is

Amazing New Stuff
For those of you who like to let the enemy hear you coming we have a new range for you....metal, metal and more metal....but this metal covers bits that others don't :
Steel Vambraces - over the elbow vambraces
Steel Greaves - over the knee greaves
Steel Pauldrons - over the shoulders, and neck, and upper arms...

for those of you who like to put a bit of distance between you and the enemy we have developed a Double Underarm Holster.

and for those Ladies out there that like to hide in the woods we have developed a Leaf Coat with a difference, it has a built in hood....

Special Offers
For those of you after a bargin we have added some more items to the special offers:
Chalice Cuirass
Hex Armour
Plain Suede Jack
Plated Tabard
Woven Ryder

Thanks for looking and we will get working on the next set of stuff.

I've brought a fair bit of kit from Tim in the past and would encourage anyone looking for new stuff to give darkblade a look. Some great kit at decent prices, and always a friendly face :)

I had a set of elven armour made by Tim. The service I recieved throughout was awesome. He altered the designed several times so it was perfect. His work is amazing and of the highest quality. Best of all he will always help you if there is a problem with any of his stuff. The guy is a legend

What Ho Folks

I don't know if any of you live within striking distance but there will be an Open day at the Darkblade workshop on Sunday 6th March. I'll be there from 11am to 4pm, free tea and coffee(Bring your own mug). If you've got any broken kit that you think we may be able to fix using the workshop kit bring it along.

Mr Medlock will also be in attendance.

Postcode for satnav is OL3 7NH

The full address is Unit 23, Tanner Business Centre, Chew Valley Road, Greenfield, Oldham, OL3 7NH

When you get there you'll need to ring 07986 335478 so I can come and find you(it's a proper maze inside)

Look forward to seeing you there

Cheers

Tim
