I hope you dont mind Laguesue but im planning to make a spaulder fashioned after yours. with some differences. But I am interested in how you put the battle cuts into the pauldron of this armor, I had intended to strap mine to my peg dummy and take one of my swords to it. however, i have 3 hand forged Katana that are sharp enough to cut through a 3 inch thick tree or steel pip with 1 to 2 draw strikes. all my other swords dont even have edges because they are stage steel. I am building the armor for live steel reenactment at renaissance fares and Gorean group.
