  1. A recent commission, the blade is a tiled end grain w's pattern with a 340 layer twist edge, the guard and spaced are also 340 layer Damascus and the pommel is a single tile of the mosaic pattern. there are 7 carnelians set in the hilt and scabbard the handle is cord and leather wrapped and the scabbard felt lined popular with a leather wrap and steel fittings it is set for a left hand carry, as this was ordered as a companion to the falchion I made a few years ago. Like the falchion this is a full take down, and includes a damascus wrench with a damascus skull bead to take it apart. enjoy!
  2. Soon I'll be casting a reproduction of the giant bronze age Ommerschans dirk, recently acquired by the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden, Netherlands. In preparation I've cast the regular sized dirk that these giant ceremonial versions are most likely based. The regular size version is the so called Kimberley type dirk. At least two nearly identical blades of this type have been found. One has rivets, so originally would have been hilted. The one found at Kimberley never had rivets, and is therefore already a "ceremonial" version, just like the much larger ones. The Kimberley dirk is 34cm in length, and weighs just over 300gram. My reproduction is a little bit heavier, but the overal dimensions and maximum thickness match the original. The original dirk is in the collection of the British Museum, but sadly not on display: http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/collection_online/collection_object_details.aspx?objectId=808735&partId=1
  3. I think there is a good amount of resemblance between the Bell Dirk and the Vendetta Corsa dirks from Corsica, Italy. I wonder if there was any relation or interaction. Anyone ever had the same thoughts? i post some pics fo Vendetta Corsa dirks here. i suppose i don't realy need to post Bell Dirks pictures, there are some fine pics spread in the forum ps:i do not own the pics
