  1. -Thats some serious grinding right there. Very nicely done! What are the dimensions?
  2. Here is one of mine. This one is a little homage to the fiery beards. How? Well, the motif is bearded men, and the bronze is... similar to fire... right? Its a four bar construction, steel and some shipwreck iron strewn in between. Would love to do a bit more of these. But oh how much other shiny things in the universe there is to do! -Jens
  3. Lovely. I do like the overall shape. If I made that I would be very satisfied!
  4. Lovely design Jul. I think you are hitting the spot as it were with developing the "viking" knife design. These are really some excellent works of art. (If the sentences don´t make grammatical-sense I apologize. But I think the message gets across) Always exciting to see what you are making!
  5. Thanks Alan. This was one of those projects where I got a cut almost every time I handled the blade... So I had to wait with the woodworking until the bleeding stoped... Anoying, but sometimes thats just what has to happen it seems. Thanks I am very pleased myself. Its the shine on the edge isn´t it? Cheers! I am now contemplating making one for myself as well.
  6. Hello again! As a nice little end to the summer I got a hurried commission from a american who came to visit. He wanted a good skinning and all round knife but with a bit more "beef". And of course he wanted something nice looking. So this is what I made, in three days between some other work. The knife is springsteel, and some very dense wood. Sadly I don´t know what it is. Hope you like it. =) -Jens
  7. I´d recommend steen nielsen (smie.no) Where in Norway are you from? Car springs should work fine for wholesteel knifes... but then again that is recycled god forbid sloyd-detaljer.no sell some too. But then again with the pricing and the shipping...
  8. waaaa? I uhm... -wipes away dribble- what? Very lovely man! Both the form, the lines, the grindwork, the colour... I mean, this one categorizes as "OH YES!". I see patience in bucketloads and a lovely eye for form!
  9. Indeed. Maybe some very industrial laquer?
  10. Hello there! Now that I have your attention via the title! I haven´t been smithing, much less posting anything new lately. But here are some exceptions: Coilspring-steel blacksmith knives. Or "viking"knives for you, who aren´t too hard on the historical innacurate thingy. =) Hardened in oil, and tempered to a strong yellow colour. Which I left. It wont last, but they do look purdy with it. =) (and of course didn´t show too well on the picture. ) Hope you like the simple knives
  11. Salte sylte! Veeery lovely. This is some high quality craft right there! Really love the picture with the flames in the background of the (grinding?) of the face features. mmmm nice textures =p
  12. I have been following these discussions about full, hidden etc. tang knives on here and similar forums. Often it seems the ones that are american centered go for the fulltang. It does baffle me why hidden tangs are seen as special, often in the inferior way. For everything a knife is, its still just a knife. A short piece of sharp metal which you use the power of your arm to use. I guess its some kind of "cultural" standard based on production knives, movies, and probably collectors as well as craftsmen. While here in Norway we think of hidden tangs as more normal, They have been in use f
  13. If you need an anvil an antique shop in sandnes has an 60kg anvil for 1800kr now. Fairly worn, but still very usable. =)
