You might want to take a look at some of my files. One file lists and
critiques SCA armorers but is Known World wide and not just Steppes. This
armorers-lst (32K) 3/ 6/96 List and reviews of SCA armorers.
If anyone wants to have additional addresses or critiques of particular
SCA armorers added to this file, send me a note.
