Eric Estlund Posted May 23 Share Posted May 23 Last month I had the great pleasure of heading to Zack Jonas' shop for a week long messer intensive with Peter Johnsson. As a guy who generally works alone, the workshop atmosphere was a delight. With some long hours I was able to get the metal work finished in NH. I secured the grip panels and made the scabbard on my return to CO. The messer is 8670 with forged 1045 fittings, blackwood scales and German silver pins. It was important for me to have a complete object that was a true reflection of the work done in class, so I really limited after class work to a day mounting the scales cut in class, 2 days of scabbard work (sewn leather over wood with a wool lining) and then marking and sharpening the true and false edges. 9 Eric Estlund WinterCutlery.com IG @wintercutlery Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
