I'm Still Here! And I've Got Shields!
Hey everyone. It's been a while since I updated my blog. In the time since my last post, I went through Halloween season, midterms, essays, birthdays, parades and a bunch of other stuff my brain is too full to remember. I even fixed a neighbors glasses with a nail, a thumb tack and a lot of filing. I had to remake a tiny hinge.
This particular PVC Shield is designed for left handed folk, or for people who want to protect their writing hand I suppose. It is a size medium, like the Wooden Ambidextrous Shield I made a while ago. There will be both smaller and lager sizes available and I will give dimensions for them when I make them.
I intend to make a Small or Child's Shield next.
And in case just being able to order a shield isn't awesome enough, I will be creating two complete sets of for the aspiring PVC Warriors Armory.
At this moment these sets will include the following respective lists:
If you have any ideas on what I should call these sets please let me know. I will be posting the listing for these sets sometime before Tuesday of next week. You can contact me via my contacts page or through the comments box below.
In other news, I have been studying up on blacksmithing history but not as much as I would like, much less have I been writing about it. This is mostly due to my academic work load. Having to read and write a lot for college leaves me feeling little joy in the acts of reading and writing. I might write on this topic to you before I write about more blacksmithing history. There is so much I want to write about, so much to share but I only have so much energy. Oh, and before anyone suggests it, NO! I will not start drinking energy drinks or coffee. I value my health and my wallet.
Hopefully I'll write to again soon and show you more finished products.

Stephen Marts is a recent university graduate in the Riverside area and the sole proprietor of For the Honor Forge. When not working, studying, sleeping, taking care of his kids, doing chores or such, he likes to design and make new products for his shop, though he often gets sidetracked with his ongoing research. When writing, he sometimes talks about himself in the third person, sometimes in seemingly randomly in the plural, as if he and his business were separate entities speaking in unison. He is prone to typos as well. We hope this does not offend you.
