One of the new sections on the OlliN website is an area where Mark details techniques he uses in creating different pieces. For the moment we are calling this section Shop Notes. Below is a link to the first page in this series all about Chiseling and Inlay Details.

http://www.ollinsworddesign.com/osd-shopnotes.html

Enjoy!

Best,

Matt

Actually, there is a sword project in the works that will have inlay on the blade.

Very well done feature: I actually saw it before reading about it here as I usually go around the various makers sites periodically to see if there is anything new. Very clear well written explanations of the process and very good photography.

I may have missed it but is there a sword in production that will go with this pommel and when will we see the whole thing. Wink

You guys do some real interesting quality work at surprisingly affordable prices. Cool Cool Cool

As James mentioned, there is a piece that this pommel belongs to. It is a stunning custom ordered. I don't want to give away too much about it just yet, but we are getting close to finishing it up here very soon. It is a beautiful piece and can't wait to share!!!

We do quite a range of work. That is why I love our Custom Shop. It is a great chance for us to work with people to help them get the sword of their dreams. We love getting a chance to work with people to make something very special for them. And for the pricing...Mark is a big believe in keeping the prices affordable. Then everyone wins!

Best,

Matt
