The metalwork is exceptional, as usual (although with EBE "exceptional" is the norm) but Eljay's grips alone are little masterpieces. Congratulations on a beautiful piece!

Concerning the grip - ElJay gave me a few choices for the grip material, including wire-wrap, different sharkskins, etc. I went with baby rayskin.

A sum greater than just the parts, I think you have a terrific addition to the swords you are commissioning. Kudos to you and the collaborators for another well done.

Cheers

GC.

Man, Eljay is the man! I've gotten to mount a few of my blades in his baskets and the workmanship in his hilts is supreme. This one here is no exception and the A&A blade is very cool as well. Great score:)

The sword looks excellent. I hadn't considered a Neptune/ocean inspired mortuary, but it works well. Congratulations and my compliments.

Beautiful

Is there a reason one of the screws seems to be not run home?

Cheers

Yes, I see it. I hadn't noticed that before. I'm not sure if it came that way, or if the screw has loosened gradually over the last 19 months. I'll have to tighten that up.
