JPH Posted April 13, 2016 Share Posted April 13, 2016 (edited) Hello: OK.this damn faire is getting to me and this is just the second weekend...so here's something I just made..why?? I dunno..just seemed like a good idea at the time..Don't think it turned out all that bad...No real basis in anything other than I just whipped it out on a whim as they say... A two handed broad dagger (?) ... The blade is in my Solar Storm pattern, L-6 and 1060 ...with a 14 1/4" long, a full 2" wide with twin fullers each side. Forged phosphor bronze mounts with a small smattering of file work...bronze studs in the "fossilized" Bovine Ivory grip. OAL is 20 1/2": The sheath is oxblood leather with bronze chape/locket and is set with a 77.7 ct star ruby (cut this one meself a while back...) it's about the size of an olive!! Big Ol' ROCK this is...I do one "spiffy" blade each year for RPFS and I think this is it. I think it turned out ok for something out of the deep, dark (and I mean deep and dark) recesses of my feeble mind... Hope these pics turn out.. This little guy is heading down to Irwindale for next weekend...

Why is it when the Mighty Thor throws his hammer he is dispensing Justice and fighting Evil..BUT..when I throw my hammer I wind up in a mandatory 16 week anger management course??</p> I came into this world naked, screaming and covered in someone else's blood...I have no problem going out the same way...
