    Latest Construction Photos and a Request for Aid

    @Caleb Harris I’m sure JPH’s impact is hard to quantify but finding ‘The Complete Bladesmith” was the catalyst for me going from ‘I wish I could make knives and swords’ to realising I could. I’m sure others have come unto this path through the same means. He creates excellent swords, knives, daggers, etc. Use an image search for some of his blades (sorry Jim, your own photos suck ). As for the thief, I hope he loses at least one testicle in a freak tool-carrying incident.

    Hey Josh. Very nice. I’m quite liking number 3. Could you perhaps enlighten us a bit about these carpentry axes? Are they for different uses or individual preferences? Thanks.

    Veðrfölnir, the "Storm Pale"

    Lovely work. How did you do the grooves on the handle-slabs? They look very smooth.

    Starting a Pair of Bowies

    Very nice work as always Gary. A pleasure to follow the journey. I take it that is simply a reflection and the escutcheon on the front Bowie hasn’t fallen out .

    Real old wrought

    I found this on the banks of the Thames. It’s either real old wrought iron or a stick that holds a magnet. How would one go about salvaging this if at all possible? Also found another interesting ferrous object near it. Thanks

    Integral Damascus Bowie

    Haha. I just thought of old finotiob this morning too when I was reading Geoff ‘s post.

    Nice knives Gabriel. I do like those handle-shapes of yours.

    Hand finishing hardened L6

    Sounds like a finotiob nightmare. Good luck.

    Drow Short Sword

    Very nice Jake. I like all the detail. The clean ‘brut de forge’-like texture you added to the face caught my eye.
