We currently have one Triplette rapier, one Long Hanwei and one short
Hanwei.  We also have three gorgets which are shared with our youth
fighters (and a fourth one that needs some work to bring it into line
with the rigid standards).

*grin* been there, done that

I wouldn't mind picking up a replacement guard for the generic Hanwei
guard on one of the loaner blades and I would definitely be interested
in a affordable source of loaner/starter gorgets.

Of course Master Peter (Max the armorer) of Bryn Gwlad (late of
Bjornsborg)   was quite willing to make me guards for the same price
as Darkwood's economy guards for the loaner gear, as well as a loaner
ring dagger for a reasonable price (with a SafeFlex blade so as to be
Adult and Youth appropriate)
