well i posted some of these pieces up six weeks or so back when everything got lost,so i shall try again,and glad to see things are back to normal again.
A lot of new work has been coming out of my shop for the past couple of years so i wanted to share a few of the pieces that i have really enjoyed working on.

I also love the fullers and the nicely shaped handle.

So many beautiful things.

I especially like the Type XX, and the Jertho Tull sword really takes me back.
