I've been watching this unfold, but have yet to make comment.

This came out amazingly well. I really like the patterning in the fuller and the inlays look really nice against the pattern.

Great work.

Wow! This is inspiring! Thank you very much for detailing the entire process.


I'm impressed that the inlay retained it's shape after forging.


Beautiful overall sword shape, too. Great fuller lines.




"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt
