Very, very nice!
I hope you will continue contributing. The messer was my absolute favorite of these items. Very nice work!

Very beautiful pieces. I especially like the red tinted birch handles on one of the eating sets.

Gorgeous! I love the long rondels and the messer. The placement of the nagel on the messer looks odd to me. I see that it was that way in the original, I wonder if the first finger was meant to go over it? Interesting...

Welcome Marcin,

Really nice work. I especially like the first rondel and the eating sets, looks like nice attention to detail and standard of finish.

Hello!

Thanks for such a warm welcome, guys! Happy

@ Mark- I've been in my cave, learning, forging and grinding Happy
@ Tim- unfortunately I don't know any details about that messer, but I agree that the nagel placed like this is rarely seen. Below there are some photos of messer of similar period and territory, with "nagel" on the handle, not on the guard, too.

And some photos- this time, besides more daggers, I would like to show you some of my toys Happy I realize that many of you have much superior workshops, but those few little things are with me for short time and I'm still very happy to finaly own them Big Grin


Small lathe, old soviet style :P Date of production around 1960, weights 300 kilos. Unfortunately her abielieties hasn't been tested yet Wink


Belt grinder with vavariable frequency drive.




Heat treatment oven with digital temperature control.
