Here are some great photographs by Peter Rebac of Amber Studios, Edinburgh of a Sword made by Paul Macdonald of Macdonald Armouries.
The sword is a reproduction of the Gilling sword in Yorkshire museum.
I made the blade , the commission and the rest of the work was Paul Macdonald's. Blade is en42J and 15n20, 7 layer twists with high layer edge (700 or so) . the handle is wrought iron stabilised bog oak and silver.
I really love the look of this piece and the photographs bring out the visual texture briliantly. there is an underplay to it all that I really love.
I get great satisfaction when a blade of my making is brought to life in this way in someone else's hands.







hope you like it .
All the best Owen
