It seems like I've vaguely heard the name before, it seems like I've worked on one of his swords before. It seems like he operates in the North East someplace Vermont maybe? Where did you attend this faire? I'll have to look at my records when I get home to be sure.

As a general note like so many artisans unless they have a web prescence they often do not exist to this community. That of course does not mean that they do not exist nor that they do not do great work. We often tend to forget that our little corner of the world is not the be all and end all of even the sword world. Happy

Nuts. I forgot to look at my records last night to double check my memory. I therefore hate to say anything in case I've got the wrong guy. Let me see what I can find. The sword I worked on had a dark brown leather handle wrap that was then spirally wrapped with twisted copper wire and had a large bronze or brass pommel.... does any of that sound like what you saw?

Peter Farquar used to be in Long Beach, CA. Used to see him at the Long Beach Renn Faire. I do not think he does much bladework anymore.

He uses the same foundry I use for various casting projects.
