A word on the Japanese style blades.. I am pretty much done with the research for my 4th book, the working title: "The Hand Crafted Blade: Tools and Techniques for Craftsmen". Once I finish up the few pieces I have left I will no longer be making any Japanese inspired blades. So if you see one you like, you best get it. There will be 125 pieces total. This is not many at all when you consider I have made thousands of blades over the years. Once these are done, they are done.. No more will be made...

The Japanese blades will be marked "Hage Bokatsu", along with my chop on one side on the tang and then signed with my signature on the other.

We have also added two new sections, the "Weird and Wonderful", these are items that usually do not fit into what I usually make, and my "What the Hell was I Thinking" section where all the other even weirder stuff will be... so be sure to take a look. 


So with all this now done....

The items that are currently available are:

 

 

Item No. 1 is a GORGEOUS pattern welded "Pillow" sword (these were called this cause these were supposedly hung by your pillows while you slept..whether this is true or not... this sword is still just too beautiful for words..). The  21 1/4" long, 1  1/4" wide double edged blade is welded from 1095, L-6 and meteoric iron. It is in a very tight and undulating "Ladder Pattern".

The double edged blade has a single 4/5th blade length fuller on each side and shows great contrast and patterning. Simply breathtaking. This is one of the nicest pattern welded blades I have made...It shows  great chatoyancey  and simply has to be seen ...

The grip is..well, the grip is unique (well at least for me it is..) in the fact that it is made from bowling ball material that I scrounged a while back. Oh geeze this stuff is just totally bizarre and I can not describe it. It shows a depth of finish and so many colour variations that it is just mind blowing. It looks like a cross between Gold Tigerseye and Baltic amber. The photo does not show "the depth" to the finish. This material is simply..well, it is just unreal...Almost "other worldly"..

The hand forged phosphor bronze mounts are file worked and seems to "pull" the whole sword "together". The grip is hand fluted, and very comfortable to hold and quite "secure" in the hand.  These photos do NOT do this blade justice at all.

The leather sheath has a bronze chape and locket, and the throat is set with a 33.10 Ct  100% natural Star Ruby (I cut this one myself from the rough) which shows a very nice star under direct light. This whole sword just simply "works"... Elegant yet deadly...This one is just marvelous...

The leather sheath is dark Oxblood Red and makes a very "bold" visual statement indeed!! This is one shortsword has to be seen to be believed!!!! Feels solid and fast in the hand and gives great point! Beautiful, fast and deadly..how can one beat that!??!

This is simply a remarkable sword to say the least. OAL 27 1/4". Priced way below what it should be..but what the Hell...

Item No 3 is a GORGEOUS little Sgain Dubh in 1096, L-6 and meteorite. The single edged blade is in a "Ladder" pattern and is 4 7/8" x 1 1/4".

This is a handy size of knife that is simply gorgeous. The pattern is easily seen.

Very striking with file worked phosphor bronze bolster and pommel plate. A very stout and rugged knife that feels wonderful in the hand. OAL is 89 5/8". Black sheath.

Priced at $425.00

 

 

Item No 4 is a simply drop dead gorgeous Sgain Duh with a 5 1/4" long 1 1/4" wide single edged blade welded from 1095, L-6 and meteorite .

The blade shows great patterning and contrast. The Rengas Tigerwood is one of the rarest woods available and it is simple GORGEOUS.

The phosphor bronze bolster and pommel plates are both fileworked. This Sgain Dubh has a great feel to it...very solid in the hand.  OAL is 9". Black leather sheath.

Priced at $425.00

 

Item No. 5 is a very nice Sgain Dubh with a pattern welded blade forged  from 1095, L-6 and meteorite.

The single edged blade is 5 5/8" x 1 1/4". The pattern is easily seen due to the great contrast.

The grip is Royal Ebony and the file worked bolster and pommel plate are phosphor bronze. This is a handsome  knife with a great feel in hand.. OAL is 9 3/8". Black sheath.
