@jonnynomad He's second age. Steel now.
@neuromancer well, he's getting good.
@jonnynomad He's good as long as he can control his Viking temper.
@neuromancer is that why you won't let him spar with his brother?
@jonnynomad Yes. I have two sons. I would prefer to keep it that way.
@neuromancer I don't think I've seen that blade before. Is it new?
@jonnynomad B forged it last spring for him.
@neuromancer so they get their own blade when they reach second age?
@jonnynomad That's right.
@neuromancer do you still have yours?
@jonnynomad It was in my left hand tonight.
@neuromancer so when does he get to use the claymore?
@jonnynomad He'll use the steel of his clan until third age. Then he can use whatever he wishes.
Besides, the claymore is a foot and a half taller than he is.
@neuromancer but B isn't of your clan.
@jonnynomad Not many are anymore. B is Icelander. It still works.
@neuromancer I see. It's pretty cool you carry on the sword master tradition.
@jonnynomad Hardly a sword master. But it is tradition. My dad taught me. His dad taught him, etc. I'm teaching my kids, hopefully they'll teach theirs.
@neuromancer This is the way.
@jonnynomad Something like that. Sure.
