  1. Been looking for days and it would seem everybody is lazy and ignorant in this style. I have a leather lace about a 15th of an inch thick by a quarter inch thick. I'd like to do a wrap around the hilt without using glue,rivets,screws or any other fastening device other than the leather. I hope somebody on this site can help by either demonstration or posting a link to a similar form of education on the matter.I have seen it done before and I have done it myself but i'd like to know more than one way of doing so. I currently have no sword to work on in practise so I am currently using a half in
  2. Here's my Norse reenactment getup, It's about 80% made by me. Its the best I can do so far. The tunic, undertunic, belts, buckles, pouch(deerskin), leg wrappings (are a WiP), knife sheath(lambskin or deerskin sewn inside out and reversed it was a pain in the behind), knife, the tiny copper brooch by my collar were all made by me. The overtunic is 100% wool except for the cotton thread stitching, with tablet woven wool trim I had ordered. Under tunic is undyed linen Pants are linen, I only dyed them. shoes also bought(I gave up on trying to make them) the sword is just some production
  3. According to the Örvar-Odds saga, Hafgufa was the mother of all sea monsters and fed on whales, ships, men, and anything it could catch. Hafgufa was said to have lived underwater, and when the tide was low at night, her nose and head would rise out of the water. The only physical description provided in the saga is the nose sticking out of the water, which was mistaken for two massive rocks rising from the sea.

  4. I have been commissioned to make a sax for a person who plays in the SCA. His persona is that of a Rus trader and he wanted something sufficiently "viking" and with a bear theme. So... The requirements are about 7" in the blade, dark wood handle of a wood native to that region of the world, "Gotland" style sheath and, a bear theme. He also mentioned that he is hard on knives and has broken several in the past. After a bit of back and forth we settled on a Borre style of art for the fittings and sheath. The first thing I did was look for Norse bear motifs. There are not many. Th
  5. Thought I would share this recently finished project with you all. ' I forged the blade in late summer from 5160 , hand filed to finish. I suppose it could be classified as a seax, although the upswept blade profile is not what is viewed as being a 'traditional' seax shape.Plenty of historical finds to validate the shape ,though. Fittings are wrought iron, and the handle is blackened chestnut. Sheath was a challenge ,I hadn't tried repousse before, so it took a few tries to get a result that was at least presentable. And please don't ask me about peening those rivets in between the
  6. Here is one I just finished up, minus sheath. I'm calling it Splinter and it's your basic utility knife, the blade was forged from 1095 and 15N20, the handle is made from copper, maple burl, leather, and zyrcote. Thanks for looking. -Robert Burns
  7. 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.
