  7. Rob, Thanks. I love your sword also.
  8. Professor, Thanks for your great praise. and thanks so much for your recommendation regarding the dao jian fittings. Thanks you give me an ideal of the price should be from 60 - 90, if we want to have the market. The perception is what matters. i keep this in my mind. Thank you again. Charles
  9. Miles, Thanks for the formula comments as below. For the smith in the studio. they often charge near 10 per hour. For example, for this complete handmade bookmark. The materials silver is about 8, for the working time. for one pc, it cost about 16 hours. ( 6 hours called one day as usual ) then the smith basic cost is 160. For custom orders need 50 for the drawing ( no need this for this bookmark ). plus the packages and DHL shipping cost is about 40 . and it is already about 258. how much do i need to charge for this condition? I feel It's not accepted for most of lovers. Custom order only 1 pc. 1 pc need about 16 hours. but if 2 pces should be 16+8 = 24 hours.
  10. Scott, A lot help for me. very good suggestions. You gave me a lot of thinking, expand the subject like snail, frog, toad, gnome, supernatural god-head type face etc. try some more materials. Fine some use for that. Very good. and great thanks. Yes, i will sign it. Charles.
  11. Sir, I am really happy to collect the information that some one like you would like to pay 60 for the handmade one. Great thanks for the below comments, it's complete. that's really help me. May be you are right. cast the rough Bodies first, then hand chase the section details. like the Panache. and even more. this works. I need try on this. but how much many of the people would like to pay? 50 ? or less ? Charles

  13. Hey Friends Here. I need your help to finish the below investigate. How much most of you would like to pay for something ? This is always a puzzling problem for each of new work - how much would you like to pay for this bookmark ? Dear friends, just input the price you would like to pay have it. no matter how this cost indeed. you can mark the materials you like. the pattern you interested. the technical you want. for example, pure handmade from a piece of metal sheet. or lost wax casting. or combine the both technical.
