  6. Greetings travellers! AS i am sure you know, the Trolls are coming down from hills and they are posing huge danger. Lots of cattle and even free folk are missing and we know they fell prey to vicious eottins. All this is calling for a travelling Trollslayers. The grim folk, equipped with strange knowledge and stranger weapons of trade. The fight with troll is different to killing wild beast but also to fight with human opponent. So the weapon needs to be huge, heavy, but with accute point. Some preffer huge spears, some strangely shaped axes, but the most revered use what they call KNIFE, a huge sax. Here is one from the workshops of Owen Bush and mine The big one, used for slayin is 90 cm long with 59 cm long blade The blade is 5 bar . wrought at back, with 2 oposed twists made from wrought iron and a low layer 1095 wrought 15n20 mix , there is then a layer of 1050 wollf toothed with the edge 500 layers of the same 1095 wrought 15n20. part of the set is a mormal sized sax, used traditionaly for harvesting a token of victory, claw, ear or even a head of especialy formidable troll I crafted fittings and scabbards of a mix of materials, leather, antler, wrought iron, silver, garnets... here it is for you to wittness glory of almost forgoten craft of trollslaying

Hello Gentlemen So I am sick again and I start to wonder if we can I improve my work environment by using some gas and dust protection the problem is that I want this to to be forced air type so I can breathe during forging.
