And some even more exciting Mair interpretations. One of us at GHFS is looking into the same stuff. :)

Hey Roger! Thanks for posting this video, although I'm not sure it is of good enough quality to warrant its own thread. :?

But I'm very excited to hear that one of your training partners has been looking at Mair's Scythe. I would love to connect with him to swap notes and ideas!

I'm sure that many here will agree that it certainly is interesting enough for its own thread. The work you do is great! :D

I'm not sure how far my partner has come with this, but I think he'll read this thread eventually. I think he's still in the starting blocks. :)

Also, I know there are more people looking at Mair's peasant weapons. Again, I'll check with my friend about other people he may have talked to and see if they are interested in sharing thoughts.

Another badass weapon. This video looks like a scene from a horror movie!
