R.W. Deavers Posted February 24, 2016 Share Posted February 24, 2016 I was talking with a very good friend the other day. During the conversation, the topic of craftsmanship came up ( as it kind of often does). He asked me if I had heard of Jot Singh Khalsa. I must say, up until then, I have not. My friend proceeded to pull Jot's web page up on his phone. The work he does is simply beautiful. To this point, I haven't really cared too much for Middle Eastern and other foreign styles, but after seeing Jot's work, I was intrigued. Later on that evening, I got on his site and had some time to really take in what was presented to me. Seeing his work has inspired me. With all of that being said, I have had a design doodled out for a khopesh. I have done a little research on them and have seen some modern-made ones in action. Simply put, I want one. So, here's what I'm figuring, combine the khopesh with some inspiration from Jot's work. To me, it seems kind of natural. My question is this: Should I or shouldn't I? Below is a drawing of a slightly traditional khopesh drawn to 1:1 scale (actual size). Let me know what you think. You are NEVER too old to learn something new.
