Wow! Fantastic work Kevin! I think I've said it before but it has been a real pleasure watching your exploration of Chinese swords and watching you grow as an artist. This one came together really nicely, beautiful work.

Thanks, Justin, Alan, and Austin. I am going to give a shot at one of the D-guard paidao next (hudiedao, the precursor of the accursed butterfly swords).

Eh.....Uh......um....wow.

My brain locked up.

thanks everyone.

Matt, Brian, Charles.

Charles, I couldn't have done anything near this without your fittings. I have a hunch there will be more projects in the future for us.
