  1. Nice Work Bruce, thats quite the hammer, really like the handle carving. Prost! Jens
  2. Bruce, I love my Canon Power Shot A620, the swivel LCD screen really comes in handy for shooting pictures of parts and blades on a table. I used it to shoot all the pics for my company's new parts catalog, worked perfectly. Skal! Jens
  3. OK so here are a pile of full size pics from my vacation including several others besides the sax pics that may be of interest to my fellow blade-smiths. Such as bronze age to middle age weapons ... posted off site - so I'm not sucking Don's bandwidth Enjoy http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4523.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4528.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4531.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4554.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4606_2.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4692.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4742.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4743.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_47461.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4748.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4751.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4753_2.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4754.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4755_1.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4756_1.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4757.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_47591.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4761_1.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4762_1.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4763_1.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4764_1.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4765_1.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4766_1.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4767.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4771_1.html http://www.easypics.us/pics/IMG_4461.html Jens
