  1. Hey @JPH. Funny, I was just wondering the other day what you were up to. Sorry to hear about all the sh.. you were dealt but glad you’re on the mend. I’m still waiting for that next book of yours .
  2. That would explain it. I knew I’d seen that handle before in an antique store but the blade was much shorter and no sheath.
  3. Gratz and we’ll deserved Matthew
  4. Welcome Dave. That is some really fine work in every good sense of the word.
  5. Any error repeated is a feature/pattern
  6. Now THAT I’d like to see in a baseball game
  7. I am in no way involved but some of you might remember the video about pocket knife maker Stan Shaw Well, one of his knives has come up for sale on eBay here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/195719276977?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=eDEmK6mhTvq&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  8. Didn’t you hear him coming?
  9. Old springs were 5160 so maybe start there.
  10. When it comes to shape and size, have a look around the forum too. @J.G. Elmslie hasn’t been on the forum for a few years now but he made a study of European single-edged swords (and created the typology for falchions). He has some work here including the one linked below.
  11. Thanks Bob. Good to know. So (a) don’t forget to stamp, (b) if you forgot to stamp, etch (or straighten again)
  12. Thank you both. I will definitely check those out
  13. Thanks for the insights Aiden and thanks for the link. I’ll have to make some time to read that.
  14. When you do get around to testing, and if you don’t mind; I’d think another post-straightening temper will help with stresses but could possibly lead to rewarping. Would you mind checking that too Bob?
