Hi everyone,

Yes Lorien Mae Krause was born on May 16th at 36 weeks. She was 19 inches and 6.2 ibs.

Fit and finish are excellent. Despite her small size there is a surprising amount of heft and a point forward balance. Despite this odd dynamic I really enjoy the handling characteristics.

It is wonderful to see the quality you can get through a custom collaboration. Indeed, I am so fond of this example- I believe I will not be making any more orders of this particular type as I have found what I wanted.

Sorry I couldn't resist! Wink

Jeremy

Looks like a nice... custom. I imagine you will find the construction a tad unsteady in spots and it may make some odd noises when swung. Wink

Seriously, congratz.

Congratulations, Jeremy. Those tend not to depreciate with age, though the upkeep might be a little more than you're used to.

Congratulations and some projects only seem to work as a collaboration for some mysterious reason. Wink Laughing Out Loud

I concord: this type of works are inclined to release big amount of refuses in they first years... The situation will bettering in about two or three years, as will do the amount of nocturnal noise.

Be wary though: after twelve of thirteen years they maintenance cost will soar!

HA! That's funny!

Well her mother is so who knows?

Thanks everyone for allowing me to share my happy news. Through my fellow forumites at myArmoury I have really gained so much knowledge and passion related to my hobby but I have also found a kind of community that has become a comfortable place to hang out and even to veg. out during a stressful day or two along the way.

So cheers to Nathan, the myArmoury Team Members, and all my fellow forumites!

Jeremy

Congratulations! Those custom projects are surely nice thing to have, but do they take up quite a bit of time!

congratulations for this extraordinary piece. Your collection has been greatly enriched.
The hardening seems excellent. I tried on my books. I think it is a unclassifiable Oakeshott's type.
