Back in my home shop now, and oh how I missed it, catching up some back logged projects. So here's what I've been working on!

"Ouroboros" A type XVIII sword. OAL: 34.5", Blade: 28" POB: 3", weight: 2lbs 9 oz. Blade is 6150, hilt is mild steel with an engraved pommel, handle is poplar with cord wrap and dyed leather grip.





Rondel dagger modeled after a late 15th century northern Italian dagger now housed in Rothenburg. Blade is slightly hollow ground, double edged forged from 5160. Rondels are hand filed out of high carbon steel and blued. Handle is stabilized poplar burl and peened. The proportions are as accurate as I could calculate to the original. 15.75" OAL Blade 10.5"

Nice - I like the pommel cap on that dagger.
