  1. Peter, truly magnificent! As always your work simultaneously conjures both Awe and Inspiration. Thank you as always for your incredible generosity.
  2. I can't help with the origin, but she is definitely a beauty. I've never seen one quite like it with the narrowing of the table at the horn like that.
  3. Neat.
  4. Registered and looking forward to seeing everyone again! I can't believe it's been five years.
  5. The blade is stunning Peter, but the entirety of your creation is nothing short of marvelous.
  6. You could just turn your hooks to fit a 1/4x1 or so piece of barstock, then hang your spiral from that. That way you have support on each loop.
  7. Doc with a head shot like that you might get cast into the next season of Game of Thrones as a Mastersmith of Valerian Steel! Definitely look the part of the wizened curmudg.... um... dispenser of sage advice
  8. Well Deserved!
  9. Brilliant. Thank you for the knowledge Peter. Your generosity of information is just as inspirational as your work!
  10. Peter, a few quick question if you don't mind? Do you apply any kind of adhesive to the upholstery nails or do you find they stay well enough just being nailed in? And do you continue the leather wrap under the wire wrapped portion of the handle? Thanks!
  11. Peter your work never ceases to amaze. Such an inspiration!
  12. Chuck I have one of your originals that I bought from you in person over 10 years ago. I still love this thing. Glad to see that you are back at it, if only just for a limited run.
  13. Hey Dave, I would suggest you go to Travis Wuertz site and peruse the pictures he has of his grinder and work rest. It is not very hard to make if you have a milling maching and is rigid and very adjustable. I don't have any pictures of the one I made but I'm sure I can find the time to snap some if you need it, but I doubt you would have any trouble.
  14. JD you never fail to demonstrate that which I aspire to. That is a stunning piece of steel. Well done sir!
  15. Very nice Owen!
