I used to head up to Scotland a fair bit when I worked in the UK...looking at your works of art makes me feel bad I spent all that time getting drunk in Edinburg instead of visiting Skye. Happy

Patrick...hello again sir,many years have passed,great to see you again and hope you are keeping well.Times change but some things stay the same,mountains,sea..Swords ')


All is well at the Kelly household, thanks for asking. All the children are now on their own and having grand babies. The wife and I are enjoying the time to ourselves, something we've never had before. Coworkers are retiring or getting younger and I feel the passage of time more every day.

I've always loved your work. Your style has a look all its own that I quite enjoy. I have no trouble recognizing a Castle Keep sword when I see one. Perhaps someday I may even add one to my collection. Lovely photography too.

Hi Sean
I would recommend sending a PM to Tim Seaton,he posted on the first page of this thread,he is the owner and i sent him the specs prior to sending it,it would work in a shorter form too i think.

I don't usually go for fantasy stuff but that elven blade is magnificent! The silver inlays really do it for me. Keep the photos coming Rob! Great stuff.

Thanks Tim,that is flat wire incised into the wooden grip and then hammered in,it is a technique that was used a lot by knife makers back in the 90's, works well with figured maple etc.

I have to add that it does look even better in real life! It's absolutely stunning. I should really get on and write a review of both that and another very impressive sword that Rob crafted for me.
