Deputy Marshal Phillipe writes:

A glorious armoring was to be had, fixed and made safer the padding in my helm, replaced the strapping and blade work on my sword, and buffed and polished and made most beautiful me arms! What a day thanks be to our very own Lord Balthazar! Also must say many thanks to Dwarven Ranger as we will be putting good use to our new loaner sword and loaner shield that shall always be a part of the Shire's inventory, free for anyone so interested to use and develop an affinity for heavy combat in the SCA, I am sure! Quite a good day. Thank you everyone, again!
Lord Balthasar:  Made new dishing stump. Shield boss is the first completed project.
