Hi,

for some reason a German theme has come over my work recently, partly brought up by a messer I have recently finished. During the scabbard research I came across a lovely set and had a go at making a similar one.

I have also been making Ruggers for a while and so while I was at it made one of those and added in for the pictures a Holbein dagger I made earlier. this year.

In an earlier thread about eating prickers Peter Johnsson brought up a point about whether the squared off edeges they have can be use for sharpening and so I thought I would go to the extreme of the idea and the pricker has hollow ground edges and has been left full hard and yes it really does sharpen.

If any one is about this weekend in Ryton on Dunsmore near Coventry in England they will all be on show at TORM

I hope you like them

Tod

Beautiful, indeed, Tod. Just my to 2 cents : I would have prefered a larger blade on the first one. But the second one is a real beauty. Now I want the same :-)

Cheers,

David

Very nice knives. I especially like the messer with the wooden handle. Very nice shape and finish! I'm quite jealous of the lucky one to buy it.

That's a Bauernwehr or Hauswehr.

Square pins. That is really cool. Always love seeing those little touches in your work.

Thanks, I really do appreciate hearing what you all think and indeed all those who post up images and knowledge, for people like me it is absolutely invaluable.

Yes it is on the small size for this kind of knife, but as a personal preferance I like small knives, so when I am indulging myself rather than a client I often go this way.

Great work. I'd be happy to own any of them. I especially like the knife with the by-knives/pricker.

They're all great. I especially like the antler handled knife with the by knives. Is it a "trousse"? Probably there's a German name I don't know.

I wanted to post the historical artwork that looks to have inspired one of the pieces above. Love the original and Tod's interpretation.
