I was donig a photo-shoot recently and had some seamless gray set-up in the studio along with the lights, so I pulled out a bunch of my basket and compound-hilts and put 'em down for a couple quick shots. Sorry for the bad quality, but I'm burned out on photos for now after the last 8-hour long shoot!

Awesome collection , Nathan !

Between the two of us we could raise a small army of well armed, complex-hilted, troops !

It would be something to have a exhibition of these modern-day masterpieces !
Perhaps Antonio could give us some pointers on how to put something like this together, stateside ?

Again, wonderful collection ! Mac

Nathan's bad quality is still better than the best pic's I can seem to take.


That is a sweet collection.

Nathan;

I agree with Gary your bad quality photos are equal to most peoples best photos: The shapes are easy to understand without over intense areas burning out the details or deep shadows hiding details, you also don't have dark cast shadows distracting the eye.

Naturaly when you have the time and energy you can impress us even more!

It is also good to see all these in one glance and comparing each to all the others. Very nice!

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Would love to, but I no longer have the cash for such things. Oh well, maybe someday.

By the way, you guys are all very kind with your comments. Thanks.

As always Nathan, that's a great looking group.

There aren't a lot of people focusing on these types of compound hilts. You're really building a unique collection.

Just one more thought Nathan, A Mortuary would look REAL nice thrown in to the fray of your most brillant collection, not that I'm bias on Morts...................... Wink
