Well done! I think you did a very nice job. Nice grip, great blade, everything. What are the linked circles for? I don't think that's your mark, since the blade mark looks different.

thanks! The rings are at the customers request. the linked rings are a roman symbol of marriage, the Pugio was order as a wedding gift, the roped work on the bronze spacer was also symbolic. seemed fitting ans is pleasing to the eye so why not?

That's really nice looking - whoever's getting it will be happy.

I got the photos back from Sharp By Coop Photography, I am so very lucky to have this amazingly talented photographer ( and heck of a nice guy!) less than an hour away!
