Ha!
Not quite, but good enough.
That thing looks pretty intimidating. Well done, Harry. By the way, I love that gunstock war club you made. Don't see the likes of that very often. ;) ......McM
This is not a weapon, but a tool to make a weapon. You know where this is going. :D

This is a reproduction of a hand plane from the H.M.S. Mary Rose that was used to make arrow shafts for the longbows. It's basically a doweling plane.

The body is Boxwood, like the original, 6 inches long and 1 inch wide.

The iron was forged from tool steel and is 1/2-inch wide. The original iron was set at 48 degrees, but mine is set at 49 degrees.

The dowel and wedge are made from White Oak.

Todd, those gauntlets are magnificent
Sutton Hoo inspired sword.
Always loved Anglo Saxon grave finds. I built this out of scraps I had sitting around the house including old copper pipe and tin to make the bronze (too poor to afford gold :lol: ). Just need to cast some sword pyramids and attach the scabbard fittings.

Wow! Very impressive work all around!
Those gauntlets look great—you listed that they’re part of a complete garniture. Are you getting a complete harness?
Yes. This project was started many years ago.

That is...ridiculous. Hat's off to the armorers and gilders, and to you. I'm glad I'm not currently going for plate harnesses right now--cant really compete with that.
