Recommended Posts

I just finished my second session of this class at tannery pond forge in NH , we focused on longswords this time and it I was another incredible experience, figured the group might enjoy my daily progress photos.

Sweet!  Many reasons for jealousy there... ;)

My exact thoughts!  I am definitely needing some more pictures and specs.

There is something about a big chunk of "whackety-whackety, stabity-stabity" so well done that plays a certain chord in a man's heart.

There must be some reason, that I am blythely unaware of, why no one has inquired about the steel used.

Not bad for your first go Matthew........or your 20th whichever this might be!

Kidding aside. That's one fine piece of craftsmanship. Thanks for the process photos too.
