  2. It's been awhile since I've been able to add much here, but i finally got a forge up and running at my shop! A little 2 burner propane for now, but I'm sure it will expand soon. Anyways, I've had it up for a few weeks and everything I have worked on has barely gotten any pictures taken. I figured this project would be a good one to start on. I've wanted to make a sgian dubh for quite sometime, so I got a quick sketch up and went to town shaping a big scrap piece of 5160 from my work. More than enough steel to make something sizable when I started out. I hadn't tried any
  3. Hello, I heard the fiery beards have a bit of a knack for the Celtic culture and their sharp pointy things. I've been trying to find examples of swords around the finnian cycle of Irish folk lore. I have been guessing that cycle took place around the 4th century A.D. yes? More specifically I am looking into Diarmuid Ua'Duibhne's weapons, Beagalltach, Moralltach, gae buidhe, and gae dearg(spelling may be off) 2 swords and 2 spears. I know there isn't much to go buy in descriptions. I do want to find out what some key features of swords from that area and time looked like, and what styles there
  4. Hey guys this is one thats been on the bench for a while now, been slowly working on it when the feeling was right... blade started out here http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=28534&hl= and I ran outta steam on it and my feelings about the swords greatly changed... made it to Scotts place last year and it went into a deep sleep for many months! But after many hours looking at old sword scabbards and la Tene art it had to be awakened! and it was about time I finsihed something
  5. some initial designs inspired by history and mythology!
  6. Hey all So this is The Dryad King, and i have only just started making him Uploaded with ImageShack.us This is my first Damascus blade. I have started welding the first weld on the billet with a custom hydraulic press I made. Jee, it is much harder than i thought but I totally love it. Here in this forum I will be posting my progress and my questions since I am a newbie and you guys are total nerd-heads! So, here you go, first photos: 17 layers to begin with: And now for the Problems 1) Alright the first thing is that the two outer layers
  7. Hi all! I have recently made these design drawings. They consist of swords inspired by found celtic artifacts and I then gave it my own twist. The left sword is inspired by a Celtic shortsword and is historically correct except for the decoration on it that I designed myself. The sword on the right is a crossing between swords from two completely different times. The model of the sword is a 12th century crusaders sword, while the decoration on it is mostly La Tène Celtic. The throat of the scabbard is also Celtic, but I added the Futhark (Runes). The decoration on the pomm
  8. Hello everyone! Since this is a category in which you can post whatever project. I thought i'd show one of my past projects. A few months ago I made a pipe out of a block of oak. It was quite a hard thing to do because had to drill the shaft at an angle to end in the tobacco chamber. It was a lot of sawing and filing to get the result. Afterwards I sanded it to 600 grid, carved some decoration into it and waxed it with turpentine wax. I also filled the carvings with gold paint to give it more fantasy style. The pipe is fully functional. I figure that I could definitely use these craf
  9. Hi everyone, Today i have made these sketches of two celtic daggers. I have inspired them on several excavated artifacts from the La Tène period. I haven't been busy with sword designing for long, because i am quite young still, so i would really like to learn and improve. So if anyone has tips or critics, i'd be happy to recieve them! Have a lovely day! Jasper
