"From here to Eternity"

Paul Valery

"You are in love with intelligence, until it frightens you. For your ideas are terrifying and your hearts are faint. Your acts of pity and cruelty are absurd, committed with no calm, as if they were irresistible. Finally, you fear blood more and more. Blood and time."

The Wisdom of the Ages

"When a young man, I read somewhere the following: God the Almighty said, 'All that is too complex is unnecessary, and it is simple that is needed',"

Mikhail Kalashnikov
"Here lies the bravest soldier I've seen since my mirror got grease on it."

The Short Sword, Finally


Cleaning up some old business. Way back in June I started on a new knife/sword and it has at last come to fruition. The last post in the June archive covers the making of the pattern for the handle and the first in the July archive tells about the casting.
I've since found other handle patterns that I like as well, so I'd like to put together a few more of these.
You can find this thing for sale here.

I have to tell you...

I've finally had an opportunity to browse your current and past work, and your work is truly professional level. I'm really at the dabbler/hobbyist level, and the differences are stark.

This is quality work that you do over here. If I get some spare knife money, I'm coming here.

I'll be back quite often to check your work. :-)
