Review of: Captain Nemo Walking Stick
Just received my walking stick yesterday. Upon opening, I was surprised how hefty the aluminum head was! I further inspected the piece and came to the conclusion...This exceeded all of my expectations! The detail in the head is exquisite! My only disappointment is that the Shaft of the cane is hallow, which I already knew it was going to be. This head would be awesome on a solid fiberglass rod! One could use this item as a self defense weapon if needed, but the shaft would definitely be the weakest part of the cane. As for the Head...not too worried about that! A pleasure to have this in my possession. Thank You MRL!

Review of: Corinthian Helmet
There are only a few good Corinthian-style helmet reproductions out there: this is one of them. I have seen real Corinthian helmets--- they have hauntingly graceful lines.
Many wearable reproductions are crude and unsatisfying, and most of the better ones are too small. The pretty-looking reproductions from Greece are heavy cast bronze: unwearable and inauthentic.
This one is large enough to fit a size-8 head, and has that certain look around the eye holes that the best examples from antiquity possessed. It is serviceable steel, but light and wearable. I might face blows in this one, whereas my other delicately realistic brass one seems better only for display.

Review of: Victorian Magificator
Handle was loose upon arrival. Easy to tighten. I really like the weight of it. Suits my needs well.

Review of: Locksley Boots
I bought it for myself but the cut is a bit on the small side, however they turned out to fit my son perfectly, who wears them every chance he gets. I had to replace the lacing after a solid 6 months of almost constant wear which is more than reasonable and I am very happy with how the boots have held up. My only suggestion is to purchase one to two sizes larger than your normal shoe size.

Review of: Death Dealer Collector’s Edition Helmet
Helmet is well made and can be worn with the adjustable leather lining. It is metal so it is not light which I find a plus. It may not be an exact copy of Frazetta's drawing of the death dealer but it is a fine representation of the helmet. I have a mannequin that I change armor on periodically and he looks quite fearsome with this helmet and the axe. I place led eyes behind the helmet and it really looks good.

Review of: Roman Gladiator Kidney Belt
I got this to support my back and lessen back pain. It does both well and is non-restrictive to movements. Not only that but offers good protection both from trauma and cuts being about ¼” thick, which means about ½” thick where there is an overlap, and about ¾” thick where there is an overlap involving the belts. I have more overlap, protecting my mid section, than shown in the photo. The leather is of excellent quality and the belt well constructed. Glad I bought it. However I found two issues and overcame both. Having a 38” waist I ordered S/M and the sucker would fall to the floor with no resistance. I just relocated one rivet in each belt, and punched new holes in the belts. A few of the factory rivets popped. That issue may have been corrected by now, I bought mine several years ago.
I would give this 4 stars due to the issues stated above, but when clicking so I get a 3 star rating and the belt deserves better than that. So MRL gives me a choice of 3 or 5 stars with nothing in between.

Review of: Roman Gladiator Kidney Belt
The entire belt is thick leather and seems very well made. Looks and feels great, slims me down and adds a layer of protection for sparring.
The only caveat is sizing! I have a 44" waist so I ordered the L/XL originally. It was HUGE and I had to exchange it. By my measurement the S/M fits 41” to 48” waists, the L/XL fits 48” to 55”
The problem with the rivets seems to have been fixed, mine go all the way through and are sturdy.
