Some recent projects
Hello all, it's been a while since i've posted any new work here on myArmoury. I thought I'd share some pictures of things i've been working on. Some are available for sale on my website ( and some have already headed off to new homes. Lots of rapiers, some smallswords, and down at the bottom some broadswords. Hope you like the pics!

Some impressive work there Jesse. I was particularly taken by the rapier in the fourth picture from the top, and I'm curious about the decorative techniques you used.
Hi Jesse, some wonderful pieces there. I really like your rapier & dagger sets on the third picture - simple, but very pleasing. Did you use leather for handles, or is it a coloured wood?
The rest is of course top notch, too.
Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. Radovan, those red grips are indeed leather covered. I found two small pieces of it on sale, and now sadly its all gone. But it was lovely stuff. Great color/texture.

Tim, that sword is etched using computer cut vinyl stencils as a resist. Then the low spots are polished a bit and sealed with varnish. The high spots are blued with cold gun blue. That's the very short version of what is a very time consuming process :)
Last time I did one of these I used paint as a resist and scraped off all the designs by hand. I'm not sure this took any less time, but the design is much cleaner.

Here are a few pics:
