Wyrm Hunter's Knife

Recommended Posts

I forged this blade 3 or 4 years ago from offcuts from a sword, to demonstrate multibar welding for a friend. I fitted an antler and macassar ebony handle, but it had some weld flaws, so I never bothered finishing it. Every time that friend sees it in my workshop, he pesters me to finish it so he can buy it,  then last week I was talking to his girlfriend in the pub and she asked if I had anything that would make a suitable christmas present, and I remembered this one, so I polished the blade, did some fairly rustic carving on the handle, glued it up and had my sister make up a sheath for it. Blade is wrough, suminagashi and silver steel...

I think your friend finally figured out how to get you to finish that thing so he could have it. Get his girlfriend to ply you with ale.

Here's what I truly think: I think your carvings are absolutely wonderful. I've looked at your work for the last few years now and even your "rustic" stuff looks great. You have a knack for creating what I call "modern relics". Someday, I hope to hold one of your pieces in my hand.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
