"Not enough time in one lifetime to make every type of armor"

Balthazar of Glenrock builds armor. Not the stamped-out stuff, but true, late 15th century, German armor in his blacksmith's shop in his garage. Margaret Matray of the Casper, Wyoming Star Tribune has the story. (photos)

Balthazar, in the modern world, Travis Blankenbaker, and his wife Robyn, are members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, where he plies his trade as an armorer and she "makes Medieval glass work, enameling and jewelry." They work together in the garage/workshop. “There is not enough time in one lifetime to make every type of armor, to make every type of suit,” said Balthazar.
