  12. Ouroboros Sword

    Nice work Peter. Beautiful sword. Amazing scabbard. Do you have a photo of the back of the scabbard? Specifically I am trying to figure out how you wrapped the buckle straps around it. Thanks
  13. Triangular crossection rondel dagger

    Hey Forest. Not a full corkscrew. I meant straight (looking at it end-on) but with a twist. Think putting the blade you described in a twisting jig.
  14. 2x72 Belt Grinder plans

    Gerhard, about that DVD Wayne mentioned and just out of curiosity. I’ve checked the exchange rate so I know that’s about 540 Namibian dollars. What is that in spending power?

    Hello JPH Congrats. You must be chuffed to bits. Don’t forget your own next book though. There’s a space on my shelf waiting for it... and now this one too apparently. Charles
