  1. Super nice work, I could really mistake it for an antique. The copper fittings look great and the wrap is an amazing color. I guess you've also been watching Ford Hallam's inlay class? That ginko leaf looks a bit familiar I have too much other projects to do first, but seeing work like this makes me want to get sucked into japanese metalwork.
  2. What a cool build, I love this style of knife. I like the traditional process, it really looks like a lot of fun.
  3. It is a lovely set, and a real nice photo!
  4. Very cool forging, I am still amazed at how much freedom you get when forging, the metal can be anything you want. Is this going to be an ''ulu'' type kitchen knife?
  5. I use something very similar, although mine doesn´t have the baffles, onw swords the temperature isnt perfectly even, but for (big) knives it works flawless. I was also amazed how well this works for such a simple setup, I almost never use my electric kiln anymore, the drum furnace is just way faster to heat and gives no decarb issues.
  6. That looks like a very useful knife, and the sheath is super nice.
  7. I did some forging that I am quite happy with, my new gas forge really is a time saver. on the left a sheet metal template, the right is straight from the forge, almost a shame to grind it. This knife will be subjected to ABS journeyman testing, I finally got some time to spend on that next to commissions and daily life.
  8. Very elegant shapes, those are some impressive blacksmithing. I love the re-use of old epee blades, not too obvious but recognizable for the initiated.
  9. Those are some real nice knives, the buffalo horn is great, and the tiny bevels well worth the effort.
  10. That is really cool! almost looks like some ancient asian antique
  11. Very cool! I love scissors. These remind me of 18th century tools somehow, the combination of forged and filework maybe..
  12. This is really cool! Im looking forward to the rest of the sword
  13. Thanks guys! That was what i was looking for
  14. Very cool! bauernwehr are just such a cool style of knife and the re-inforced tip is something you just don't see enough these days.
  15. With the summer weather coming up my usual beanie is getting a little too hot and uncomfortable, but I still want something to keep my hair out of my face while forging. I was looking at some Japanese crafts on youtube again, and I noticed a lot of craftsmen are wearing these white bandana-ish headgear, often with kanji on them. I think these look very comfortable and not unimportantly really stylish I cant find a shop online for them, probably I am looking with the wrong terms, but I have no idea how these are called. Does anyone here know their name, or even
