Re: [SCA-JML] Re: Kozane in Metal
- I could not find the appropriate email in this thread to reply to, but regarding material thickness, 20ga is the most common I've seen around. Most of the folks I've seen on the field are wearing either Polar Bear Forge or White Mountain Armoury lames here in New England. Worth noting, Polar Bear [whose site I only discovered this morning] seems to offer two designs that I assume are intended to be kozane [see numbers 14 and 18].

That's an interesting possibility. Take a look, though, at the
patterns for okegawa dô on my website.

Those are not simple direct curves. Could you do that sort of thing?
Since Noble Plastics makes those standard kozane, one thing that is
definitely needed is the tapered kozane that would allow curves to be
produced in scale-made dô. If you made *those* it would probably be a
good thing. :)
