Michael, your wood hoard reminds me of my Dad, who carves song birds, waterfowl and fish. He has a stash of wood that he couldn't get through if he lived to be 300 years old!

Hi Michael, thanks. I like your work too. It harks back to a time when craftsmanship & swordsmanship & skill with knives were on a par.
Are they purely decorative, or do you hone them to a scary level of sharpness?

Hmmm well, I guess I don't have a forge and from that book I read, It's really over the top for me to build one..not only that but it's against code here:))hahaha I did see somewhere some Aussies were making the blades out of pmc paper, so I thought about checking into that. I don't think fine silver could hold up, so I guess it would be ceremonial...but that's ok. Any ideas?

Hello, Michael - glad to hear you like my pieces, and yes there are subtle sensual references, as there are in your pieces, too.

Welcome to Crafthaus and glad to see you found The Society for Midwest Metalsmiths, too!
