Late 18th century town sword I just finished up. Playing with a bunch of new techniques. Silver plated brass, enamelled maple burl, patina and age. For full discription and full size photos here's the blog post

Beautiful! I agree with Alan, you totally nailed the feel of it. All the details and patina are wonderfully complementary.

Very nice! and I like the contrast of the pitted blade finish to the jeweled handle.

Question how did you do the start/finish of the twisted wire? Trying to run some ides through my mind.

Photos only show the elongated “V”. 

Kind thanks,

How did I miss this? Epic. What a fantastic job on that.

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”
