1) click on the image to go to the gallery page and take a look at the specs. of the piece.

2) PM me a bid of what you would be willing to pay for the piece.(shipping extra)
There is a reserve on this piece, don't worry about bidding low.
Be sure to say what piece you are bidding on.
5% of the price goes to myArmoury.

The bidding will end Friday 10-2-2009 at Noon (PST) after which I will contact the winner
and anounce the final price and the winner (unless they want to remain anonymous).

Let me know if you have any questions about the piece or how the auction works.

For any other man's,
Nor that I will be ashamed
Of my work torn hands-

For I have chosen the path I tread
Knowing it would be steep,
And I will take the joys thereof
And the consequences reap.

I'm really happy to add this unique seax to my collection, and can't wait for it to arrive! I'll say a thing or two about it once I have it in person - till then, thanks Ben, for creating these 'Pick your price' topics, and allowing us to have a good shot at owning a truly spectacular piece of functional art and craftsmanship.
