Midrealm armorer prides himself on period look and feel

Several years ago Midrealm subject and machinist Ben Scheiner learned he would need armor to take part in SCA fighting in the Barony of the Fenix. Now he has parlayed the hobby and his flair of metalworking into a fulltime job as an armorer. The Cincinnati Enquirer has the story.

"True re-enactors want realism," he says. "I pride myself on re-creating the period look for them. And I'm real particular about how it fits, not just how it looks." Today Sheiner operates Dragonforge Armory, a business that keeps him very busy.
