I'm BAAACK Once Again

Hello All!!

It's been a little bit since I posted...

As a few of you know I have been working on book IV and all with the various subjects and information that it will contain..

Be that as it may..

I have been making a whole lot of Japansese themed pieces and I am dead dog tired of doing Japanese styled stuff so I took a couple of Tanto blades and mounted them a bit different.. These are really NICE...

Red Deer antler, bronze fittings and all...

Hope ya'all like them.

JPH

Those are spot on. I love the marriage of the two forms.

Beautiful as always Doc! I'm with Tai on the straighter handle, but both are really nice.

As I have said I am Baaack!!

Hello all..

Like a bad Penny...I AM baaaackk!!


I have been working on all sorts of different things for my 4th book and an....

here are a couple pf pics of a Japo/Euro "meld" as they say...and two of the molre "traditional" pieces..the middle two are as follows:

Blade material is 1050 and L-6 with a "Tanto" Shape/Style....Grip material is Red Sta and the rest is bronze..Makes for a psuedo-Puukko-esque inspiriered piece or two...


The other two...well those will take some research on YOUR part to see what is what on my websire...


Hope ya all like them...

I'm thinking maybe we should ban you or something, Jim. Just enough to piss you off to a degree that you decide to post more of your stuff here!
