    Speech: "Enormously, that's the main part as far as I'm concerned, but certainly it's worthwhile".



    Reporter: "And a 14th century armourer would have had to do the same?



    Tony: "Oh yes, only more so 14th oddly enough I'd like to make a really splendid suit such as a parade suit made for the various kings in England during the 15th and 16th century but I haven't yet found a client wealthy enough."



    Reporter: "How wealthy would he have to be?



    Tony: "Well we're talking in terms of about GBP2000 which is quite a lot of money for a suit of armour. It would take me many months of work. Hopefully one day somebody will come along and say make me that suit that very best suit and I'm going to sit down and do it"
