  1. Thanks Rob! I think it's done. This is so far the best I've done. I'm pretty proud of it. Thanks everyone! Thanks as always for the guidance @Alan Longmire . This will probably be going up for sale soon.

  2. Wrapping up a last minute Christmas gift for my wife. 7” blade length. 200 layer ladder pattern 1095/15n20 with nickel silver hardware & some stabilized coral she picked out for me at a show years ago I never found a project for. Just waiting on the sheath to dry before wrapping up. First attempt at stamping leather on the sheath. It was semi successful, but I still hate leather work. Thanks for looking.

  3. Hello all, and merry Christmas! I just finished up this project I've been working on for a while. I'll go ahead and post a link to a thread that shows how it was made step by step. As the title says, it's a norwegian broadsax from the viking age. Since it turned out so well, and took so much work I think $1200 is enough to at least cover up some expenses and part of the time it took. PM me if interested:)

  5. Hello fellow forum members! How are you, I want to share this Viking sword as a Christmas gift, or rather yule !! We present the Warg, inspired by a sword from the late Viking age, discovered during the summer of 2011 in the town Norwegian from Langeid. Like the original sword, the Warg has a Petersen Æ type guard in the style of those found in Ål and Buskerud, Norway or Suontaka in Finland. One of the most interesting features is the extremely short and historically correct grip. The hilt only supports three fingers, so the little finger partially rides on the pommel and the forefinger and th

  6. I seem to have a problem with actually finishing stuff I begin on lately, my workshop time has not managed to be the stress reliever it usually is but I did start and finish this in December so yay me. A pretty middle class rondel dagger I made for a challenge in the WEAPONS fb group. It's relatively short with a 20cm long blade as I wanted to make something that one might carry in every day life to show off his status rather than a dedicated weapon of war. The blade itself has a rather interesting shape, a very elongated pentagon cross section with deeply hollow ground main

  7. And a few process pictures for good measure. This had a lot more parts than I'm used to so getting things lined up was frustrating at times I'm planning to make a sheath for it but still looking for information on how to go about it as I want it such that the front rondel seats down into it as well.

  8. Had a play in the shed with this prototype Bearded Uti and it is a bit more complicated/time consuming than any of the other knives. I handsanded a Serbian blade the other day after heat treat and it is a very different proposition to handsanding a standard knife with the wide blade and I didn't want to have that same difficulty (read extra time) involved so there will be a new approach to making them. I have made a new jig for grinding them and with handsanding to 320 grit before heat treat, I am going to try some anti scale on the blade. I also decided to do a new quench tank so I can do a

  9. Also, no forge deities/legendary being names. Even the ones I don't know, and I know of most of them. Unless of course it's your real name, but I don't know many Weylands, Peruns, Vulcans, Hephaistos, Thors, Oguns, Goibniu, Amakuni, etc.
