  1. It's been a while since I had anything to post but I have been catching up on my video. Here is the current progress on a broad seax: This has not been a straightforward as I would have liked - future episodes will show me reforging and tapering the nozzle of my forced air propane burner Let me know what you think. Ps: Some of you may also be interested in my Patreon experiment: https://www.patreon.com/nielsprovos
  2. Yay! I love when sometimes I am asked to make something different to my usual production. This time, I was asked to make a pattern-welded arabic styled dagger. Budget allowed for some 400layers and a simple handle with a brass collar. Boy was I fool! After I forged two 200.layered billets, I relaized that there is not enough material for me - I write "for me", because I like to leave more meat on the blade and correct various odditites by grinding. So, it ended up being 600 layers, my highest count so far. The cross section is diamond - I know that originally it was supposed to be a hollow grind, but to be honest I didn´t want to get into it then - there were far too many firsts on this one for me. Anyhow, then came the brass collar... *sigh* FOUR TIMES! Four bloody times did I have to do it I was trying to chase the borders, and - again, it beign a first - it took some time... the first brass collar was ugly, so I threw it away. The second one was very nice, but I cracked the "rib" in the final leveling of the surface. The third one I burnt off while soldering.... and the fourth one is visible in the pictures below So, the blade is about 25cms long and 4,8cms wide, and some 8-9mm thick. The handle is made of stained oak.
