Well I would like to say welcome DesertRose and also it looks like you and your husband really have a talent in the making of the blades you have shown. Thanks.
To 308 at my gate
Thank you for the "welcome" but Please forgive the confusion. My husband did not make any of those Jim Hauf had posted. Those were made in the countries they came from and the "medieval" dagger was not of my husband's.
I uploaded two photos of what my husband made in the last few years and in my files. He has made far more plain pieces but not everything was photographed before leaving the shop. Either our 35mm camera was out of film at the time or he forgot. Later after obtaining a digital camera, it was the same thing. Either the battery needed charging or he forgot...again
But sometimes a customer will send us photos though.
The ones shown are what we took and are the decorated examples. The artwork designs and all piercework is my contribution to the business. The blades are handforged spring steel and we make our own leather scabbards. The Dirks were silver mounted and made several years ago as presentation pieces sent to Scotland.
The late Medieval sword was a custom order made three years ago. The sword hilt and scabbard mounts were done in German Silver with piercework/overlay in the same material. The art design and piercework is my contribution.
The third one is a plainer Medieval "Knightly Sword" with brass inlay on the pommel and guard.
