  1. Really nice table -- you could give a lot of originality to many, many swords with that. Very cool.

  2. I like this table. I've been giving the cold iron/HC steel/folded steel/LC steel alot of thought lately. Have you attached any combat modifiers to blade materials? I love to hear your thoughts. Struggling with the crunch part of it...
