Saw this on Instagram this morning and absolutely love it! There is just so much cool stuff going on. Definitely worthy of fave status.

Dammit Owen, I keep trying to find excuses not to come over for your hammer-in, and you and Petr keep posting these masterworks that get my beard smoldering again...  Thank you for that, I have been in danger of losing sight of what brought us all together.  These last few collaborations you have posted remind me of why we started this whole divine craziness, and that I have withdrawn from it a bit over the last couple of years.  

That doesn't mean I'm going to turn up on your doorstep in May, but never say never!  :ph34r:

 

And I hope the first part of that verse is on the other side of the blade!

Great mother of monsters, that is out of the park spectacular. That watery steel, the chape, the butt cap, the whole freaking thing is just a total dish of eye candy.

I wish I could like it more than once.

Yeah, it's not fair only showing us one side of everything!

Well, as they say in show biz, leave them wanting more!

That is so awesome! I just love to see the progression in modern made seaxes: from poor derivatives, to good reproductions that truly honor the old blades, and then raising it further to a whole new level. That's truly putting "standing on the shoulders of giants" into practice!

This one is absolutely amazing, there is something beautiful on every mm of this knife.

Work like this is why I got into bladesmithing, and it really inspires me to get back to the workshop.

Absolutely gorgeous. I agree with Joshua - total eye candy!

You and Petr really knocked it over the moon with that one.  Even the knot on the leather thong on the sheath is a work of art.

You two just keep surpassing yourselves. Great work. There is not a single thing that I don’t love about this one.

You should come, it will be great, and 'IF' we are lucky, and everything goes according to plan, they 'might' be unveiling something very special there, not hard to guess what if you have seen my post on the subject. Big IFs there on all fronts. ;) But it will be an excellent gathering regardless, some super visiting speakers. im very excited (and praying the damn virus doesn't stop it)

I'd love to, and I suspect I know what will be unveiled. That damned virus is causing problems, for sure.

Wow! Absolutely stunning. Every little detail is masterfully executed. And there is plenty of little details to stare at!

 

More and more, you and Petr remind me of Eitri and Brokkr.
