Hello Gentlemen!

i am here afain to share completed work- this time a generous commission. its a sax wit 10 inches long blade made of of wrought iron and hearth steel. there are 3 grooves and three inlayed rondels in fine silver. Handle is reindeer antler chip carved in deep relief. fittings are silver and are reinforces with chased ridge. Pomel is cast silver with engraved sides and garnet set in the bezel.


scabbard is leather over wood core. Inside is lined with felt. Leather is carved, incised and tooled. Fittings for the scabbard are moose antler and silver

 

I would love to read your thoughts and criticism. its my first chip carving of this type and i love it, i will use it often from now on

The depth of your carving and texture it suggests is like nothing I have seen anywhere else. Beautiful and elegant once again!

Petr, my friend, you have outdone yourself on this one. If there were a higher honor than the beard, well, you'd have it. I still think you and Hloh have a time machine in his shed, you know...

 

 

Awesome, just awesome. B)

Fantastic work. I don't know that I've ever seen such deep carving on a handle, and it looks fantastic. The whole piece is just so rich with little details that make the whole thing pop.

it's beautiful Petr. One of my favorites of yours. And another step forward for you.

 

I had just made myself a chip carving knife from a crooked knife that broke in the quench.... maybe someday I will try to learn!
