Wow Tod my jaw literally dropped while opening the page Eek!

Seriously you have a gorgeous selection going on here. Had I been richer, I would've bought two on the spot, then contemplated about others Wink The deer antler rugger along with the ladsknecht dolch are really catching my eye.

I really like the bronze fittings on the Hans Holbein dagger, not that the silver plating on the other one wasn't nice, just felt that it lost some of its details because of all the shiny-ness. Maybe if it were made rough on parts or slighly darkened for contrast it would have looked better to me. You might have been under the same opinion I'd imagine, with all the work that goes into those details. Oh well to each their own I guess, as it was the buyers choice after all.

Great job once again tod!




Regards.

Dammmn. I want it all, but there's three pieces in particular I really, really want.

That's a hell of a group there, Tod. I love the diversity.

Wow, these all look great - I especially love the knife on the top row, third from the left. I'm sure it will find a good home (though unfortunately it won't be mine Sad ).

Tod, they're all absolutely wonderful, as usual! Man, oh man, why do I always pay off all the bills the day before you post things for sale? If I can only catch the mailman before he leaves with the checks!

The scabbards on the Hans Holbein the younger dagger and Landsknecht dagger are friggin' hot. I own the original Landsknecht dagger Tod made up and would be tempted to buy this sample too simply for the awesome scabbard.

Tod, you are making life very difficult you know that? I've been eschewing purchases diligently (with one major exception) of the last couple of years in ordet to fund a trip for myself and my family to your country (heck maybe I could even meet you in person). Then you go post stuff like this. This is gorgeous work of course and fits right in with my studies of late. So are you just trying to keep me out of England or what? Happy

Gentlemen

Can i suggest that you take deep breaths and have your beta-blockers to hand. Big Grin

Am I the only one who noted that the topic heading says "....Pt 1" ?

Listen to all those lovely objects looking for good homes; Take a deep breath and get that money circulating round the economy.......

Leo great looking pieces and if I hadn't already seriously overspent in the last couple of months there are at least 3 or 4 shown that I would have considered buying ..... I guess that is the sad news from me, at least for this " edition " of available pieces, but it certainly motivates me to plan on buying something or having a custom piece made again.

I really still very much like the Eared Dagger you made for me and your style of workmanship is very unique in looking very much as if you had a time machine and went back in time to buy your work. Big Grin Cool

Anyway, I can at least recommend your work highly even if I have to wait a while before buying something.

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Thanks everyone for your praise, I really appreciate it and it helps to keep going (especially now I am getting into the cold season with no workshop heating)

I hope to post up pt2 tomorrow which will be some more daggers (but mostly more utilitarian) and some cooks sets.

Hi all

I have seen several of these pieces from close last week end, and I must say (again) that the photographs don't do them justice at all. Each and every one of them would deserve to be shown on its own, to reveal how finely made they are.

I'm just saying...


Cheers

Brilliant work as always, Tod.

My current pace of buying two or three new bikes every year for the last few years is pretty much keeping me from tickling this itch. Which on some level really is a shame since I've wanted to re-add a piece from Todd ever since I sold of the Braunwer and by-knife of his that I picked up some years back. This stuff really is grand when you get a chance to examine it first hand!
