I am just gonna leave this here.

Call her moonchild
Dancing in the shallows of a river
Lonely moonchild
Dreaming in the shadow
Of the willow.

Talking to the trees of the
Cobweb strange
Sleeping on the steps of a fountain
Waving silver wands to the
Night-birds song
Waiting for the sun on the mountain.

She's a moonchild
Gathering the flowers in a garden.
Lovely moonchild
Drifting on the echoes of the hours.

Sailing on the wind
In a milk white gown
Dropping circle stones on a sun dial
Playing hide and seek
With the ghosts of dawn
Waiting for a smile from a sun child

Magnificent work!!  I saw where Peter had posted your blade to his Facebook page, but you have provided more shots of it.  Thank you, it is so very lovely and I am thrilled to see more of it.

+1 from me.

That scabbard is awesome as well. A beautiful mate for a beautiful blade.

It's amazing that you got that much watering with simple carbon steels.  The whole package is beyond outstanding.  I love the leather work on the handle and the scabbard.

Beautiful work. I would love to see a close-up of the scabbard,there appears to be a lot of intricate work on it as well!!   The more I look at this one the more I see. It is like your can't take it all in when you first look at the pics!!!
