With the way the economy is going, my dream of owning an Old Dominion Forge hanger is unlikely to turn into reality.

By way of consolation, I spent last Sunday hacksawing, hammering and carving, and transformed a very beat up Hanwei Hutton Sabre I haven't used in ages into the Clam Shell Hanger below.

It's a little rough-and-ready to my perfectionist eyes (it's my first attempt at such a design) but it will do for the salle.

It's still a lot better looking than what it started out as!

The ugly duckling transformed into a swan........or maybe not.

That hilt looks great. And when you're seeing all those little imperfections that those who make things often do, remind yourself that it's an impressive example of elegant simplicity. Wink

Edit: PS. Can I have one?

Hey, Jo

Hi to a fellow SSS student! I understand you're with Sheffield? I'm with Durham, in Brancepeth Castle.

It's a small world, as the saying goes.

Thanks for your comments. I know form follows function, but those Hutton Sabres are just plain ugly. I had to do something to improve it.

Yes, I'm with the Sheffield branch / chapter / whatever the proper word is. And this means I may have the opportunity to mug you for that hilt at some time in the future Wink

That looks really very good. Nice improvement and good work on the shaping.
