Incredible work Jeff. :)
Love the boldness and confidence of the design in the guard and pommel and how you executed it.

 

Love it!

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness,

nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend"

Friggin' ancient gods take heed!! That is stunning, Jeff!

 

I love the casual way in which you just nail the ULFBERT inlay.

 

Thanks so much for sharing. Wow.

I agree with Dave. I especially love and appreciate poth the fact that you used a pattern welded steel for the name and rune inlay, as well as the fact that you chose to use the contemporary rather than the original version of the spelling for ulfbert. absolutely stunning work.

This is incredible work...I literally cant think of a way it could be more perfectly executed.

“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.”

This is fine exampel of a " Art-Sword ", Sir.

 

It needs a little bit more as only a good Craftman......it really need a artistic level to make things like this.

 

Now everyone understand how the people feel in the past when they see a "sword " like this.

 

Funny thing is...... a have seen a old Original three weeks ago in a Museum in Germany . That will match with this very closley.......

Hello, I would like to introduce Skautrir which means something like "border dweller."

"Skautrir" it is just like it come from my language Iceandic the old language of vikings, but it is a very nice work from you and a nice silver inay on the " hjöltu"

That is truly amazing work. I would love to learn how you did a ton of stuff on this one.

 

Inspiring and impressive, man!

very very good !

You have managed to pull off bling and understated in an incredibly skilful way, I am not sure how you can make something that is so richly adorned look so natural in all its elements.

If I were to pick and chose the bits I like best It would have to be the amazing blade and scabbard followed by the back texture on the fittings and the silver ........not to mention the handle.

I would really love to see this in person its got so much going on in such a cohesive way.

........ going back to the pictures of the blade.....you have so totally nailed that blade I love the tight pattern over inlay .

 

I am a little bit overwhelmed.

That Scabbard is ... scumtrilescent .. I didn't think words did it justice so I made one up!!!

This is one of those pieces that ties knots in your stomach because you didn't nor.couldn't make it.

 

Totally amazing in every way

The blacksmith and the artist reflect it in their art.

They forge their creativity,closer to the heart.
