Kindjahl

[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

I'm still around. Here's one of my latest: a Cossak kindjahl. I used O-1 steel, nickle silver and and lots of hand-polishing.

Very nice, the world needs more kindjahls.... Excellent work on the sheath also.

Coming from you, Jim, that means a lot! Thank you. Everything I know about our art I learned from Tai Goo and you.
Mostly, I'm a grinder jockey, now: I can't do as much forging as I used to, thanks to shoulder and elbow issues. There are times that I eye power hammers and dream, though...
