25-NOV-2014
We've added the Musketeer's Baldic, a new scabbard, a harness, and bags & pouches to the "Additional Products" page. This resulted in a complete mess of the webpage, which caused me to completely reorganize it, even renaming it to the Accessories & Additional Products page.

We also added a new Hand Mallet to the Iron Fortress page.

In addition, we've got one of the FD Medieval High Paladin Shields with the green background plate. It is gorgeous!

Knighthawk Armoury is now a "secured" web site. Why? I have a personal friend who is one of the top 10 Google consultants in the world, Bill Hartzer, and I am a subscriber to his blog. Last week Bill recommended that every online business go from "HTTP" to "HTTPS".

OK, that meant a little research. So what does the "https" mean? I knew the "s" at the end stands for "secure", but what it really means is that each web page is encrypted between the server and the browser. In my case, I went for the basic security package, which provides 128-bit encryption.

Protons will decay before that encryption is cracked.

One more thing: If you are using FireFox as your browser, you will get one of 5 icons, not just the one yellow LOCK icon you see in Internet Explorer or Chrome. The grey Firefox icons don't appear to be reading the SSL certificate correctly, and if you click on any of those grey icons you get various encryption warning messages, none of which are accurate. Click on the yellow LOCK icon in IE to verify that the website is indeed secured.

Apologies for the long wait for a new Weekly Special. We had a huge lightning strike last Wednesday night just before 2:00 AM that sounded like a howitzer had gone off right outside the bedroom window. Well, apparently The Fates had decided I was simply getting too comfortable because that blast fried our alarm system, the phone, our cable service, several power boxes, and...the computer, including the main "C" drive.

Yeah.

We just thanked God that the strike did not hit the house or either one of us. However, that meant that all the work I had on Knighthawk Armoury, along with all of my personal files, were.... *POOF*....simply gone. . That was the bad news.

The good news is that I have a friends who's a PC genius, and Phil helped walk me through building a new PC from scratch. We did that and, I must say, it was pretty cool! My wife calls the new PC "Frankenstein". The OTHER good / GREAT / FABULOUS / WONDERFUL news is that my back-up software worked and I was able to restore almost everything. I lost a total of maybe two days worth of work and changes. HALLELEUJAH!!!!!

So after 9 days of building a new PC, getting Windows re-loaded (don't start), reloading my programs and tools, getting my preferences set, and ensuring that everything is working correctly, I am finally.... FINALLY back online.

The first order of KHA business? Update the Weekly Special, which has been done. Enjoy!

I was interviewed at A-Kon this year because one of my Booth Babes also works with the convention staff, and she set up the interview on Saturday - Day Two of the convention. It was actually pretty cool, the crew that showed up took an immediate interest in the product and started playing with the various items. Then they had an idea on the background for the interview. So...watch the interview and take note of the two guys in the background! It's pretty funny!

My interview runs from 5:02 through 8:10. Enjoy!

We've added the Imperial Commander Shield to our array of products. It's big, gorgeous, and expensive!   :)

Also note that Calimacil has discontinued a variety of their older products that we still have in stock, so we've significantly slashed to price on those items.
This is in ADDITION to the price cuts that were made a couple of weeks ago on twelve other Calimacil products.

We received shipments from two vendors last week: Action Props and Iron Fortress. We've restocked some of the Action Props items that we've been out of for a long time, like the Marauder, Rapier, and the Ornate Rapier. We've also received ONE - count them, ONE - Most Awesome Steampunk Flamer Axe. We also received some new, large, ULTRA sized Master Vampire Stakes - for use when the standard stakes just aren't big enough to handle the job!

In addition, we found a GORGEOUS new Archer's Leather Quiver, and it comes in four colors, of which we currently have two in stock.

Finally, we have started carrying the Round Buckler and the elegant and lovely Shield of Lorian , both from Iron Fortress.

The new Steampunk movie Cowboys & Engines has ordered two of our swords for use in the film! WAAAAAAAAY cool!

This makes three professional productions in which our products are featured: the HBO series True Blood, the new movie Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters, and now the movie Cowboys & Engines!
I am seriously liking this trend...

This page was getting kind of long, so we moved the NEWS from 2008 through 2011 onto a separate page.

If you want a customized Calimacil sword, you now have to email me to arrange it OR you have to order it from the Calimacil website; we the retailers are no longer allowed to directly offer customized sword combinations. *Sigh*

We have added a FINANCING option for our customers via the PayPal "Bill Me Later" program. Here's how it works:
  • You must have a PayPal account.
  • If your order total is $99 or more, you have the option to use the BILL ME LATER service offered by PayPal.
  • Select the items you want to purchase, then when you are checking out select PAYPAL as the payment option.
  • In the PayPal site, select BILL ME LATER as your funding option.
  • Enter the requested information, submit the data, then wait a few seconds to see if your credit application has been approved.
  • If your credit application is approved, simply complete your purchase and you will have 6 months with no interest to pay off PayPal.
  • If your credit application is not approved, you must either select another funding option from within PayPal, or use a credit card in order to complete the purchase.
Here are the official BILL ME LATER details.

One last thing: If you cannot afford it, don't buy it! These are awesome items, but your real life expenses come FIRST. I say this because financing is a fabulous tool, but it can be easy to overspend and I do NOT want anyone to overspend their budget.

Forgotten Dreams has replaced the SwordMaster Shield with a very similar item called the Medieval Child's Shield. It is identical is size and shape, except that the straps are vertical and the face plate is a smooth, flat black with the strap lines marked - perfect for any customization you want to add!

This weekend was AnimeFest in Dallas, and the LARP group I've been with since 1986 (yes, I'm old and decrepit), IFGS, ran their convention game there once again. What a hoot. This was a one hour, line course mini-game. The first team started at 10:00 pm and the last team finished the game at 4:00 am. We were able to run two teams at a time through the course and had at least one team in game the entire night!

So what's the tie-in? I saw LOT's of our weapons at the convention, more so than in the past, and people were using them in their Cosplay competitions, as well! Nice!   :)

Naturally I was useless the next day, and my Monday wasn't much better! But FEAR NOT; I have recovered and have an entire year to get ready to do the same thing again next year.

We have modified the Steampunk page and split the content of the page into two distinct categories: Steampunk, and Urban. Both types of product are still on the same page, but now you can click on the content link at the top of the page and go directly to the type of product in which you are interested.

ALSO: We just received FIVE new items: two on the Calimacil page, and three on the Steampunk & Urban page. One of the new Urban items is an axe that closely resembles the one used in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter".

Thanks to Rich, we have now pictures from A-Kon 23!

We just a BUNCH of new items to the Steampunk page. Check them out!

You will notice that we are out of stock on a variety of products - this is because A-Kon was good this year and we sold out of a lot of product. Rest assured that the stock is being replenished, and if you are worried about getting a particular item before it sells out again - just backorder the item.
