tehehe .. this is indeed a boys only club ..

i dont think any girl is going to want anyone to put a beard on them .. firey or not

^_^

 

,... besides .. i dont know if my plans for world domination will fit in with their plans anyhow .

:P

 

keep watching the ties!

.. i mean skies!

 

Dee, no need to go the facial hair route ;) You could have flameing bangs!

Flame what you got. I noticed that many of the flameing beards here don't have anything else to burn :P

I mostly cold work my metal so my beard is at room temp...

thanks for the consideration guys ..

but i far from qualify ..

 

members were interested in Norse blades,

had preferably made one,preferably from pattern welded steel;

smoked a pipe;

and appreciated good beer and/or brewed their own

 

the only interest i have in norse blades is when i use them on the weekend to hit people :lol:

(though that lump of greyish metal on my bench might just be inspired from peer pressure .. ;) )

 

i dont smoke a pipe .. or anything else for that matter ...

 

and i dont appreciate good beer ... in fact i dont appreciate any beer .. i cant even stand the smell of it ..

:lol:

 

all in all i think if thats the qualities of the firey beards ... then im well and truely the ice mistress.

Peer pressure is AWESOME. ;)

 

Indeed!

 

That was also part of the original movement, one of us would do something nifty or post pics of excellent ancient metalwork, and the rest would be inspired to up the ante.

 

And yes, the Dwarves are on the list at our super-secret underground headquarters, being monitored via methods known only to us. ;) Same with Ben Potter, Michael Pikula, Mick Maxen, Jake Cleland, and several others.. See, I did say we know who you are... :ph34r:

 

Dee, fear not, our plans for world domination are mutually compatible. Well, except for the beer part, but other than that we're good. B)

1 If it came from lighting yourself on fire accidentally , I would rule here .

."Flamme Fatale" ,,, well said !

Ahem.

 

 

 

 

Once thou wert of little value

Having neither form nor beauty

Neither strength noe great importance

When in form of milk thou rested

When for ages thou wert hidden

In the breasts of God's three daughters

Hidden in their heaving bosoms

On the borders of the cloudlets

In the blue vault of the heavens

 

Thou wert once of little value

Having neither form nor beauty

Neither strength nor great importance

When like water thou wert resting

On the broad back of the marshes

On the steep decline of the marshes

On the steep declines of mountains

When thou wert but formless matter

Only dust of rusty color

 

Surely thou wert void of greatness

Having neither strength nor beauty

When the moose was trampling on thee

When the roebuck trod on thee

And the bear-paws scratched thy body

 

Surely thou hadst little value

When the skilful Ilmarinen

First of all the iron-workers

Brought thee from the blackened swamp-lands

Took thee to his ancient smithy

Placed thee in his fiery furnace

 

Truly thou hadst little vigor

Little strength, and little danger

When thou in the fire wert hissing

Rolling forth like seething water

From the furnace of the smithy

When thou gavest oath the strongest

 

Now forsooth thou hast grown mighty

Thou canst rage in wildest fury

Thou hast broken all thy pledges

All thy solemn vows hast broken

Like the dogs thou shamest honor

Shamest both thyself and kindred

Tained all with breath and evil

 

Tell all who drove thee to this mischief

Tell who taught thee thy malice

Tell who gavest thee thine evil!

Did thy father, or thy mother

Did the eldest of thy brothers

Did the youngest of thy sisters

Did the worst of all thy kindred

 

Not thy father, nor thy mother

Not the eldest of thy sisters

Not the youngest of thy sisters

Not the worst of all thy kindred

 

But thyself hast done this mischief

Thou the cause of all our trouble

Come and view thine evil doings

And amend this flood of damage

As soon as I get my new pattern welding steels I will make a seax that actually ends up as a seax! It would be fun to see how I stack up next to you experts.

the 'beards' has always been a funny one to me, sometimes when im engrosed in a piece ive had enough of a flicker to realise what it might mean, then Ive have a smile at the thought that if it really lights in the future, and I can properly slip into the place where the hands produce what the mind sees, when you finish a piece and look down with the slight confusion that you made it, and your not really sure how, that it may be alight proper. Not just pixels on a screen.

Ha! John gets it! B) Once you've felt the singe, you know what it's about. Otherwise it's explaining pickles to oranges. :)

I know the feeling. Its getting lost in the work and falling into a trance. You know exactly what you want and you don't think you just create. Its a great state of mind IMO
