How are you uploading that I have to download the image instead of just seeing it on my screen.

From our attachment guide:

Quote:
Why does my attached image appear as a link rather than displayed in my post?

Images that are wider than 800 pixels or taller than 800 pixels will be displayed as a link rather than embedded in the post. This allows members with a lower bandwidth connection to enjoy their browsing experience without having to download every overly-large graphic and prevents the image from expanding past the forum's page width.

Happy

ChadA

Another great example Petr! The textures and design choice converge into a cohesive and attractive whole.

I notice that when sheathed this example has the edge of the blade pointed downward. Many reproductions- especially in the broken-back blade shape- have the edge of the seax oriented up when sheathed.

Do we see examples in period using either orientation or does one predominate? Is the issue of edge orientation related to time period, or have you chosen to produce this example in the edge-down orientation as a stylistic choice?

Hello Jeremy!
Ihave seen both, but i would say that edge up predominate in larger examples (wakizashi paralel :-))
i have tendency to use this solution as i like to place sharp edge against leather and not against stitches but i can do both

thanks for nice words

Petr

Where welts not used in sheaths from this time period?
