thanks, I upgraded to a little propane forge around april last year, and ive gotten a lot more done because of it.

how have things been in the mad scientists lab over there?

Good, thats a needed upgrade, I was going to offer the use of mine if you were still forging with a hand held torch.
Things have been going ok. Over the summer I was developing curved core tech, and I think I have it but it needs field durability testing. Theres an example in the last park day thread, but ill repost it. I'm pretty excited about it, its about as heavy as kitespar and I can shape it to be any liner form, 2d is much easier than 3d however.

oooo, that makes me feel some sort of way. any chance you'd sell me a core and i'll help test it out? cuz that looks dope, and im all about it. I havent built a foam weapon in over a year at this point do to burn out, but im slowly getting back, and a tulwar seems like fun.

Yeah I can do that, let me know what shape/length you want specifically. If you want you can also come by friday evening for our A&S and we can talk about it.

I can come out as soon as my grandmothers vaccinated, until then I'm stuck at home, though I would be happy to pay for shipping as of now. I'm thinking a 33 inch core with a maybe 20 degree curve?

I can do that, do you want a simple arc like A

something a bit more exaggerated like B

or something weirder like C

its a flexible process and I can make any 2d line.

I think for the sake of structural integrity id like something like A. i feel like the strain from a stab would be too much on the structure with a more exaggerated curve. i'll probably be passing this thing around the local corsairs, so its gonna get really stress tested, and id like to give it the best chance at a full test.

Ok, if the weather is nice Sunday I'll start on it. Do you mind if I cap and tape it? I want to see if that makes a difference as the other 2 I have I didn't tape.
