i was commissioned to make this most recently,working from the existing pieces of pommel and extrapolating the ideas into a full Sword with scabbard work too.
What is remarkable is how agile this piece is,not hefty at all,the customer has likened its handling and weight to his katana.
I carved the grip in maple and bone and used the viking/celtic motifs along with the other fittings.

Whoa! Nice hilt! I've never seen a Viking sword with a hilt like that.

Rob:
This is gorgeous! It would seem everything you make is a work of art, form, and function.
Not everyone has that talent. Trust me, I know.

Thanks, Jon


A poorly maintained weapon is likely to belong to an unsafe and careless fighter.

that is very good of Jon,thank you,
i have always enjoyed the aesthetic side of the whole Sword making process,trying to avoid ugly whilst also making sure that the piece will work can be tricky at times,i was concerned about that with this Manx sword,but it has a certain charm too i think Wink
