Wow! is that a hamon? The iron has alot of character.

“Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick.”

Awesome work.

 

It reminds me of Peter Johnson's work, which I'm sure you know is a huge compliment.

 

Can't wait to see it fully hilted.

 

Cheers!

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Thank you for the kind words gentlemen!

 

Jeroen- the blade has a 1080 edge. I stacked the edge steel from peices and the weld lines have etched. Its not shear steel but there is a slight piled steel look.

Sweet combination of everything going on here, it has so many levels of skill applied and not a one for the worse B)

I'm intrigued to see what you so with the handle and sheath.

I thought I noticed some layering :) Just shows that piled homogenous steel already adds a lot more character then just plain steel. Excellent! :)

Very, very impressive! have to second what Jeroen already said - it really changes the apperiance of sword when blade is made of piled steel, not just one piece. When do we get to see the finished blade in all it's glory???
