Hello My name is Michał Plezia, also known by nickname as Elchon. This is my first post on this forum, but I've been browsing it for some time now. I am stunned with the high level of works presented here. Many of the pieces are truly works of arts. I've finally decided to show you a few pieces that I've made. Let's start with the two daggers I've finished recently. The first one is inspired by 15th century ballock daggers. (At last something for myself ) Nz3 tool steel, circa 55-57 HRC. Satin finish. I've made a short movie showing the quality of the heat treat (narration in Polish). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osy3otT0Kio Total lenght 32,3 cm Blade lenght 19,5 cm Blade width 2,2 cm Blade thickness at the base 3,5 mm Guard and cap is made of brass. The handle is italian walnut. The second dagger is based on the 14th century italian baselard. Nz3 tool steel, 55-57 HRC. Reinforced tip. Satin finish. Total lenght 36,7 cm. Handle lenght 13,6 cm. Blade width 2,9 cm. Brass pins, plum tree wood.
