Here are some great photographs by Peter Rebac of Amber Studios, Edinburgh of a Sword made by Paul Macdonnald of Macdonald Armouries.

I made the blade , the commission and the rest of the work was Paul Macdonald's. Blade is en42J and 15n20, 7 layer twists with high layer edge (700 or so) . the handle is wrought iron stabilised bog oak and silver.

I really love the look of this piece and the photographs bring out the visual texture briliantly. there is an underplay to it all that I really love.

I get great satisfaction when a blade of my making is brought to life in this way in someone else's hands.

that is a wonderful composition. I don't know anything about the historical accuracy of the pommel and guard shape, but they are great as artistic elements. The blade is a triumph, too.

 

I can imagine that it is a very good feeling to see your work taken and built upon like that.

Yes, the whole piece has a very organic feel to it. It's really lovely.
