The smith also sitteth by the anvil,

And fighteth with the heat of the furnace,

And noise of the hammer and the anvil is ever in his ears,

And his eyes look still upon the pattern of the thing that he maketh,

He setteth his mind to finish his work,

And waitethto polish it perfectly.

nice. maybe put a pin that you can yank out through the spear socket and handle. That way, it is a dagger and a spear!

 

nice for a first, for sure.

 

good tongs/pliers, too!

Thanks for the idea kevin I'll definitely have to do that on the next one (and there will definitely be a next one)

The pliers were a spur of the moment project while set up at a local living history museum for their sheep shearing during a slow spot (I'll be doing more of these too)
