It's not that I would trade my lot

Or any other man's,

Nor that I will be ashamed

Of my work torn hands-

 

For I have chosen the path I tread

Knowing it would be steep,

And I will take the joys thereof

And the consequences reap.

HOLY. Well done Ben, Well done.

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

Ben, that is one fine looking knife. I have always wished that I could carve that way. I have some 1 1/2" wide 9260 on the way and I hope to be able to forge a couple of more seaxs soon. They won't hold a candle to yours but I just love the style.

WOW!!! :blink:

 

Ben I am blown away!!! This is so awesome and so original!

 

I am in love with it! The detail and craftsmanship are spot on, you clearly have a love and passion for the ancient culture weaved into it.

 

It’s just flat out awesome!

 

 

I know no one will believe me... but the idea of having a Viking ship styled dragons head for a pommel actually once crossed my mind!.... :rolleyes: lol but thankfully you beat me to the punch, and I must say probably did a MUCH better job than I would have done!

 

 

I am now an official fan of your work. Keep at it!!!

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness,

nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend"
