You may have seen some of these blades in previous pics. Here are some hilts that I have been working on for them. As you can see, there's a lot of work to be done, but they all basically fit and are ready to be shaped, and the grips need to be finished with cord and wrap or burlwood. Scabbards to come.

Thanks and happy holidays Big Grin

Thanks you guys. The ones with tape and touch up are ready to etch and the big one with the cross still needs tape. The hilts still needs some shaping but are close gotta do grips and scabbards. The huge very curved one is high layer pattern welded steel for the Three Moons sword from the Falcon trilogy by J.M.Roberts. The 300 sword needs some forge work on the fittings and the block of bronze on the tpaed up one is a solid habaki.

Very intrigued by what appears to be a very interesting kriegsmesser. Is that a speculative project, or is it spoken for?

Thanks. That is just one of my "Peacemaker" style blades. I've made lots of those, kind of a mini Zweihander:)

Out of this batch, I think I particularly like the overall look of the sword on the top. Very nice proportions. One thing I really like about John's work is the variety of swords he can do. Unusual designs like the "300" style sword really appeal to me.
