As some of you have figured out, I'm quite a fan of Tod's Stuff, a UK-based supplier of knives, swords, short polearms, crossbows, and period goods. I have 6 knives and daggers by him. While you can see stuff of his in many threads, including this one, this one, and this one, I thought it would be fun to collect a bunch of images of his stuff in one thread so people can see the breadth of offerings he has. People are welcome to add their Tod's Stuff items as well. Happy

First, here's my Scottish dirk:


And my rondel dagger:

My sax:

My new quillon dagger:

He might as well go ahead and formally adopt the title, "Cutler To The Arnow." Beautiful work!

Well, maybe the status of "The myArmoury Cutler" would also be adequate. I think Chad is not the only one owning some knives made by Tod.

Some very nice pieces in this thread. I hope there will be some more reviews coming in the future.

@Tod
Ehem, maybe you should start some "special offers" or "special line" for the members here ;=

I always review my collection pieces for myArmoury if we don't have that item covered already. In fact, I'm in the middle of reviewing my latest piece, the quillon dagger... I have the first 2 sections written. If my son naps long enough, I might be able to get it all done today. Happy

Gorgeous stuff from Todd again! He's a real powerhouse in knive and dagger making. I'm happy if I finish just one or two in the same period Happy

You're going to make Todd go red when he sees all the attention he is getting. Laughing Out Loud

Todd makes amazing stuff. I have always wanted one of his crossbows.... or really anything he makes but his crossbows are very cool. I have a blade for a rondel I got from him that will someday be finished by me. The blade is lovely....and deceptively sharp.

That is very awesome work! I really like the Norse knives!

Just received this dagger from Tod. As part of a trade with an antique dealer I ended up with an unhilted dagger which I think is early 20th c. or 19th c. (although could be older, hard to know for sure). I had the blade shipped to Tod and we worked out a new hilt for the blade. I think it came off rather well. We went for some silver fittings and a style that would not be out of place from 16th-19th c. and which was loosely inspired by a dagger in the book Swords and the Sorrows. Will be working with Tod again for sure! tr

This is my Anglo Saxon Broken-back Seax. THe blade is was made by Owen Bush and all of the other work including inlay was executed by Tod.

I love it- and show it to everyone!

Tods work has such a spot-on period look to it, it's very impressive.

Being a big fan of Tod's work, I wanted to add more to this topic so that things aren't lost over time

(all photos are from Tod)
