  1. Thanks Collin! At the moment I don't have the tools nor the time to make these, but they're on my pile of designs for future projects
  2. Hi guys (and the occasional lady), Once again I haven't posted anything here for a very long time. I believe it has become a habit for me to post only once a year... Anyway, that doesn't mean I am not productive! I have made a new sword-design, after David DelaGardelle gave me a nudge, telling me that I should make more designs. That gave me the idea to incorporate him into the design, together with Tolkien, because they have inspired me so much throughout the years. So this is a little tribute to two great artists. "No half-heartedness and no fear must turn us aside from following the light." - J.R.R. Tolkien I've also made a second picture which contains two more design I did, but haven't posted before. The dagger I made 1,5 years back is also in it. The left blade is a Nazgul dagger inspired by the Nazgul swords from The Lord of the Rings and the right design is a high-elven sword from Gondolin. Thanks for viewing and hope you enjoy!
  3. I'm loving those blades.. I can't wait to get my hands on them to make the handles and fittings. Very proud of Karter, he needed a few tries to get there but I always knew he would pull it off. Now it's fingers crossed for the quench!
  4. Thank you Vaughn.
  5. A nice solid chopper Miles!
  6. Thank you Don, that's exactly what i try to achieve; making it appear alive. So i'm glad it works!
  7. Thanks for the compliments on my design drawing guys!
  8. Hello everyone, A long time ago Karter Schuster and I made the decision to do a collaboration on two brother seaxes. Inspired as I can be, I started drawing a possible design for the seaxes. Back then I came up with this: Then I wanted to make a little alteration on the handle design and designed a sheath for it (which is upside down, i know... ). After this we had put aside this project for quite a long time because we were both busy with other stuff. But recently we picked it up again. Karter got a massive leafspring that will be the steel for the seaxes, he is still determining what type of steel it actually is. After some more discussions about the design we decided to alter it quite a bit. We wanted a more broken back look on it so we changed the back of the blade. Then I wanted it to have a little more sophisticated handle decorations, so all in all a complete redesign. I will have to design a new sheath for it as well and I'll post that later. In the handle you can see our initials in runes. Here is the final design: Karter will be forging the blades from now on, so I will have some time to rest until crafting the handles and sheaths. We will keep you informed on every step in the process! Cheers.
  9. Thanks guys! Sadly I can't look into the future either, we'll just have to see what it brings me
  10. Hello everyone, It's been a while since I last posted. The reason for that is that I am a person with many interests and hobbies. Some of you may remember some of my blade design sketches I posted on the forum over the past two years. I got a lot of positive comments on my drawing skills, which I am very thankful of! Therefore I wanted to show you one of my other endeavors; I make hyperrealistic (beyond the realism of a photo) drawings with pencil on paper. It's something very different from blade smithing, but it does take the same amount of patience and obsession with details. On my Facebook page you can see my works: http://www.facebook.com/art.dielemans And for those that don't have Facebook, this is my personal site: http://jasperdielemans.wix.com/realism I have an equal love for blades as i do for drawing, but I focus more on drawing because it forms my only income. It kind of explains my frequent absence from the forum. But what's better than making a living out of your passion? I do have a new blade project coming up though. I will be doing the handles and sheath for two brother seaxes in collaboration with Karter Schuster who will be crafting the blades. Good luck with all of your own projects! Jasper
  11. I took note of the sheath being upside down. Thanks for notifying us guys, would've been facepalming to find out after making the sheaths..
  12. Love this combo! Beautiful work, both of you
  13. Beautiful chopper, and nice hdr pictures as well!
  14. awesome knife! And I have to say that the background is also extraordinary and works beautiful with the knife!
