A   rapier fighter here in Adlersruhe has  order the quillions out of
Triplette's SCA section....I understand the same this has happened in
Bonwicke some time ago.  These quillions do not pass Ansteorra's rule
standard.  The rules state ".......Quillions  will not be longer than 12
inches overall, and the ends must be blunt and of at least 1/4 inch in
diameter"  section II. C. 6. of Ansteorra's current rules.    The
Quillions that are put out by Triplette  are made of 1/4 stock; however,
the ends are rounded to almost a point, making them unsafe.  One can
weld a  ball on to the ends, or maybe file off the rounded point part at
the ends, ....and there may be other ways to fix them as well, But they
are not Ansteorra ready when you order them.   It's Triplette catalog
number SCQR in the SCA section.  I have E-mailed Triplette about this

May we meet on the field as friends,
