its been a while since i've posted anything, i lost my camera but now i have someone taking pictures for me.

 

This one is forged from a Nicholson file a month or two ago.

the Handle is part of a block of mystery burl i got from the Blade show last year. the pattern and iridescence of it surprised me.

the guard and pommel are wrought iron from some anchor chain i bought on here last year.

 

I'm really pleased with how this one turned out. I tried to tease a hamon out of it, but it just wouldnt come. I could see it in the oxides after the etch in dilute, but whenever i wiped the blade with steel wool it would disappear! :angry:

Great to see more from you again Jared, nice work.

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

Very nice shape to that one, Jared.
