"Woo hoo! It arrived this afternoon. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for being so gracious as to make adjustments and send it with such dispatch.
It has been such a pleasure to deal with you. I was entranced by the pictures on your website, but actually seeing the workmanship on the chainmail bra, I am absolutely amazed. It is beautiful all the way through, from the innovative design concept to the finest of details. And the page of instructions for the three points of adjustment was very clear and helpful."

"Dylon, Feel free to use any or all of what I've sent to you for your 'Satisfied Customer's Page', because we are well satisfied with the Wizard's Mantle. It is one of the finest pieces of craftmanship that I've ever seen. And it was really a pleasure doing business with you. You kept us informed the whole time as to the progress of the work being done. So there was no guessing or wondering when or if we would ever see it. I know we were going on faith, but some how I felt that you were a person that could be trusted. And it's good to know that people can still be counted on in today's world.
Thank you again for a superb product and we look forward to doing more business with you in the future. Your friends in Tennessee...

"After an exhaustive search on the internet to find a site that sold
chainmail, I arrived at Kusari's Lair. His website immediately stood out
as exceptional in terms of the variety of merchandise offered and the
quality as appeared in the photos and the price.
I ordered a chainmail coif and in corresponding over the specifications
of my order, I found, to my great delight, that I had located a true
craftsman. Kusari is a blacksmith who takes great pride in and care with
When the coif arrived, (in a very timely fashion), I was in awe of the intricacy of the work. It molded perfectly to my head and shoulders and
loked as if it had sprung directly from the middle ages.
I look forward to many years of ordering similar items from Kusari. His
skill, dedication, and creativity stand alone in this field!"

"I have had my European Necklace Pouch for close to a year now. It appealed
to me because of the flow and sheen of the metal.
Dylon Whyte's skills and talents at knitting metal are impressive indeed.
Each time I have worn it, someone has tried to walk away with it.
I hope to collect more as time goes by."
