One of the main reasons I created Sword-Site was my dissatisfaction with MyPalmery and Sword Loser's Guide. I feel that both those sites are thinly veiled catalogues for A1bion and other sword makers. Furthermore both those sites are full of out of control trolls, hence Sword-Site is designed around information rather than being a forum for keyboard warriors. In light of this I have closed the review section and moved it into the open forum. I've kept all the reviews, and people are still welcome to do reviews, but having a dedicated section for reviews is not what this site is about and so after reflection I've decided to merge reviews into the general boards.
The back and forth, chit chat and page upon page of noise is never what Sword-Site is about. That is what most forums are though, especially in the sword world. Sword-Site is a unique catalogue of unrivaled size, and in this spirit reviews of modern swords don't deserve to be showcased, but rather should be in the small open section on this site; as Sword-Site is about historically significant original swords, not reproductions.
