  1. Final price adjustment....now $1,750.00. Marcel
  2. I hate to do this but I really need the cash. Up for sale is my beautiful short sword build for me by David DelaGardelle in 2013. Forged by David DelaGardelle of Cedarlore Forge, Huandagnir (Elvish meaning “Bane of the Hound") is a short-sword dagger, an Elven blade of the darkwoods. Cold, keen, light and swift, a lively long-lived weapon, used by a young elf soldier who hunts the hounds that seek the blood of his people. A blade born in bravery, brought forth to bite and cleave the hide of any hellish Northern Hound that would dare show claw or tooth against the mighty Elven tribe that forged it. Steel: 1075 and L6 Guard and Pommel: Antique textured mild steel Grip: Mpingo Blackwood OAL: 22 1/2" Blade Length: 14 1/2" Grip Length: 5" Here is a link to more photos of this beautiful piece: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.553856894656463.1073741831.325397927502362&type=3 My asking price is $2,250, and this includes a display stand . The knife is in Europe and I will ship to most places. Standard shipping (equivalent to USPS) with limited insurance is included in the price. Buyer bears risk unless they opt for more secure shipping via extra insurance, additional cost depends on shipping address. Payment via bank transfer or PayPal (add 4%). By making an offer to purchase you are confirming that you are over 18 years of age and the knife does not contravene any local or national laws in your place of residence. Any questions please email me at m.dierijck at casema.nl Thanks, Marcel
  3. Being born (in 1954 ) and raised in Rotterdam (and now living only 20 km from the city) I can tell you that there is indeed nothing to find in regard to armoury in the vecinity. However if you are prepared to hire a car and take a 300 km (times two) trip the Deutsches Klingenmuseum http://www.klingenmuseum.de/_english/dkm/homepage.html in Solingen (Germany) is really worthwhile. Or maybe make appointments with a few really talented knifemakers like Gudy van Poppel or Sam Lurquin?? Or come by for a drink and a bite and we can talk knives for a while. Marcel
  4. What a talent...........amazing piece. Marcel
  5. Jasper, you are really talented. Very exciting swords, I hope you will go further on this path. Marcel
  6. Great, where can I get the download? Marcel
  7. Richard, graag gedaan. Here is the link to the blademag: http://www.blademag.com/profiles/blogs/everybody-wing-chung-tonight-with-knives-2013-wing-chung-swords Marcel
  8. Gerhard, what a beautiful set of knives, IMHO the best knives you made to date. I know of only one German scrimshander with the talent to match yours and that's dr. Peter Jensen. For those who want to see his work check out Knives 2011 with an article about him from Don Guild. Marcel
  9. Maybe a bit of a blast from the past but Knives 2013 and Blademag (www.blademag.com) pay attention to this set. Good job Richard. Marcel
  10. Cory, thanks. I was asking because the last one reminded me of the work of Rick Fields, one of the greatest scrimshanders that ever lived. He signed his work with R.B.F and it looks like that I see that signature in the last photo. Marcel
  11. Good looking photos of some cool knives. Do you by chance know the name of the scrimshander who did the last two knives (wolf and lynx/bobcat??) Marcel
  12. Richard, that's a great looking ring. Your background as a jeweler really shines through. Marcel
  13. Normally I'm not that fond of subhilts, but this one is amazing. Great job Gerhard. Marcel
  14. Yep, JD is a great knifemaker but not the best photographer in the world Marcel
  15. As promised here is the photo Jim Cooper (SharpByCoop) made of JD's new folder. It captures the mokume and other details perfectly. Marcel
  16. Yep it took a while but it turned out great. Love all those little details. As soon as I have the photo's from Coop I will show them here. Marcel
  17. I'm almost sorry that I don't smoke. What a cool piece. Marcel
  18. Congrats guys, that's super cool. Love the sword love the movie. If I had known sooner I would have looked at the sword with different eyes. Marcel

    Really cool piece Dee. Love all those nasty little details. I think you're ready to try your hand at a Goblin folder Marcel
  20. As promised here is an update. Wade Colter is, as quite a few of you know, one of my favorite makers. Well this year he made me an other Goblin folder. I just received the pic Eric Eggly made. And boy am I pleased with this one. A few interesting facts about Wade that you might not know. He is one of the original members of the "Montana Mafia", and he was the first bladesmith who received the George Peck Award (1997) and B.R. Hughes Award (1999). I believe (but I'm not sure) that so far only Ron Newton and Rodrigo Sfreddo repeated this feat, and I reckon Kyle Royer will be a likely candidate. Marcel
  21. Thanks guys and galls for the comments. Howard and Dee, if you ever get the inspiration to make a Goblin and it is done, think of me....I might be interested. Richard, that's a nice example. Keep at it, practice makes perfect (oefening baart kunst). I reckon Jim Schmidt's or Larry Fuegen's first try at a Goblin was far removed from the quality they eventualy produced. I will be adding a new Goblin made by Wade Colter any day now. As soon as I have decent photos I will show them here. Marcel
  22. Okay people, I don't post much here, but given the fact you all have a love for the out of the ordinary I thought I share a couple of my knives with you. Although I collect several types of knife Goblin folders are my main interest. Not many makers make these little puppies but I've been able to collect a few, and in the coming years a few others will join me. Here we go.
