Fwd: [krms] Change to definition of heavy leather
- FYI. As with most society rules, we will be using this standard as-is.
-------- Original Message --------
Discussion on the new C&T Facebook page pointed out that we defined heavy leather as 8 ounce or 4 mm while the standard equivalent to 8 oz
was 3.18 mm. After some investigation into where 4 mm came from, and international usage, our rule has been changed to 8 oz or 3.18 mm, not
4 mm. Since this allows for slightly lighter leather if you buy in mm, no one's current gear should be affected.
This change is published in the official location on sca.org, it goes into effect immediately. As Kingdoms can maintain a higher standard,
they can update this change in their rules as it is convenient. http://www.sca.org/officers/marshal/combat/rapier/
