I THINK WE SHOULD CHECK THIS OUT...



Anybody see this on their site? I hadn't noticed a thread on this here. While not a historic piece itself, it is a historic piece in that it was made made for a historic time and purpose. It is up for bid auction to raise money for relief efforts. My net skills (maybe someone else can add some pics or something) are far too poor to post images etc., but here is a little info from their site:

In light of the recent tragedy in Japan, the prior earthquakes in New Zealand, and the one year anniversary of Haiti's disaster, we at the Mad Dwarf Workshop teamed up with Japanese swordsmith Rick Barrett to craft this sword, auction it off, and give %100 of the proceeds to the cause of supporting the humanitarian relief work going on in Japan, New Zealand, and Haiti.
The proceeds will be going to Samaritan's Purse, an incredible and worthy emergency relief organization and long term missions agency. They have been responding to every disaster and humanitarian need with compassion and generosity for the past 40 years.
To learn more about Samaritan's Purse and the immediate work they are now doing in Japan and countless other countries

About the sword:


Forged from 1095 and 8670 pattern welded steel made by Rick Barrett. ground, heat treated, and shaped by David DelaGardelle of the Mad Dwarf Workshop. The deer antler donated by our friend Shad Peters, a professional guitar building luthier, and carved by David.
Folkvrńrthr was crafted to be elegant yet grim and rustic. Keen and lightweight in the hand. An aggressive & fearsome sword, but only to defend the cause of the weak. It reflects a possible lost mythic culture unknown to the world of modern men...


Stats:
OAL: 41 1/2" long
Blade Length: 29"
Blade Width: 2" at widest point
Blade Thickness: 3" 16th at thickest point.

Check out

and make sure you want to give these people money before you jump on the bandwagon. There are other ways to give money for relief efforts.
