  1. Just stunning. I've been a big fan of your swords for a while Matt. I'm curious about the handle.

It's been such a help, so thank you everyone who contributes here. A little bit about me: 29, forged my first blade a little over three years ago. I quit my job 2 years ago to pursue this skill/addiction full time, and have not looked back since.
