we seem to have the biggest trouble doing the searches, we keep hitting chain mail and the like or historic blacksmiths FAQs that do not sell it....

I guess I can try to be patient, but it hurts, it hurts....

oh plus, we did an ebay search and it was fucking creepy, they kept saying SLAVE chains and such, like that is what a good selling point?
I told D we are under no circumstances to buy a chain repro or real if it says slave anywhere on the ad....

what size?
for what purpose (does it need to be functional or good looking)?
what kinda length?

I know quite a few metalsmiths and armourers that probably either can do, or know someone who can make chains.  Lemme know.
