I just completed a new piece. It is a 15th Century dagger based off of examples in the Royal Armoury at Leeds. Here are a few photos and a link to my page with more information:

That is absolutely fabulous. It's a simple design....but very complex....if that makes any sense at all. Well done! Happy ....McM

This dagger is simply great. I love the hollow ground faces and the handle shape looks extremely comfortable. The pommel also fantastic. It somehow blends both a bit of elegance, and a very strong sense of effectiveness. The hand would be locked in to that for purpose. Great job Eric.

Fantastic piece. Everything looks amazing but what sticks out for me is that the fit tolerance between blade and guard is incredible.
