Jesus, that is very fine work!

 

I am very happy to see how this long knife has gotten a new life through your caring hands. It is a glorious piece and your ambition to make it something complete from material choice through form and design to embellishment is really inspiring.

 

I will get a DVD!

 

I wonder how a late roman spatha would look if you made it?

It would come out as a treasure, I guess.

welcome! a well deserved lighting!

that is a lovely seax. I've nothing bad to say about it ,nice carving, great pattern , but he sheath is just over the top the tooling on it is amazing as are the fittings, the color is perfect, warm ,rich. very good work.

.... so when are you going to do a sword?....

I realized in the middle of the night I had not told you to send me a picture of yourself so I could light your beard, but I think you did a better job on that than I could have! B) Much like this seax... :lol:

beautiful seax

really like the blade its self... cutting edge and twist spine.. what a wonderful, full picture !

 

and the repeating divots on the edge of the case remind me of vertebrae ... (osteology still in my brain from university :wacko: )

 

excellent post

Thanks, guys. I really appreciate all the wonderful feedback.

 

Peter, I am not sure about a spatha but I have something in mind that came from the same continent and the Mediterranean water washed its shores too.

Enjoy life!

Well, I just tried to order the DVD, but Paypal refuses to recognize North Ft Hood as a city.

 

No worries, Jon. I just got the PayPal confirmation.

That looks wonderful. Well done. Your seax is really inspiring. My own experience with twisting bloom material has mostly been on the frustrating side so far. but this will keep me going :-)

Thanks, Niels. Bloom metal is like a box of chocolates...I was lucky that the bar I made for twisting behave nicely.

Enjoy life!

Whoa! :blink: It's not a win/lose thing, it's just a friendly excercise to allow two friends to explore each other's preferred style of bladesmithing. B) Admittedly, with Jesus being Spanish he's probably got a bit of ancient Visigoth genes that allow him to feel the seax the way I do. ;)

 

Lee, when (not if!) my tanto/wakizashi/whatever it ends up being does not ring as true to the spirit of the required object as Jesus' seax does, I will not lose my beard. I will just be grateful for the friendship that led to such an opportunity to expand my limited horizons. :) Not that I'm gonna go down easy, mind you. :P

 

Remember, I have up to three years! :unsure:

 

 

Hi Alan- Hope I didn't get you worked up, I was just joking- guess I should have used a winky emoticon or something. Cheers- Lee

The use of texture and patina in this piece is wonderful, and the blade... man what a blade! Everything comes together beautifully.

 

I'm glad to see some tooling marks left here and there, it adds to the authenticity of it without taking away from the high level of craftsmanship displayed.

No worries, Lee. B) I took it in the spirit in which it was intended.

 

I am just so blown away by this seax I'm utterly gobsmacked. :wacko:
