Limited Edition "Dark Ages" Swords
My first limited edition blades went so well, and as a way to generate needed capital for upcoming surgery I am doing a Limited Edition of 25 pieces total of "Dark Age" swords. These will all have pattern welded/laminated blades in a variety of patterns. Some will be simple laminate others will be more complex composite patterns. Hilts will also vary but will remain within the "Dark Ages" period.
All of these swords are fully hand forged, hand ground and hand finished. Each one is unique and one of a kind
These swords will be marked with my 8R/heart chop and numbered 1 to 25. These are very powerful blades and cut very well. All come with a leather sheath and fully sharpened.
The ones we currently have available are below:

The throwing axes I make are forged in several different ways depending upon the style of the blade...All include a medium carbon steel bit for the edge. Some are folded and welded..some have the body slit, forged, opened for the handle and then have the edge inset. Either way is "traditional". All of my axes are slow rust browned finished as I have found that this is a very durable finish for an axe. The browning process I employ is proprietary, developed after years of research, but it does result in a very attractive, and durable "tawny brown" coloured finish that is quite durable as well as pleasing to the eye.
All of my throwing axes use the same type of handle..the more or less " standard tomahawk handle" that is available from various "muzzle loaders" or "Mountain Man" suppliers. Now due to the nature of hand forging some fitting of the new handle may be required but that is up to you..a few minutes with a wood rasp and some sand paper and you are ready to go...
At present we have the following in stock:
All pieces have been sold.will be posting more in a little while after my upcoming hand surgery

My "Weird and Wonderful" Section:
This section is dedicated to my half brained..Why not do this sorta thing...that I was thinking about finishing...
Flint Striker Knives
These little guys are forged from old Nicholson "Black Diamond" files (which are made from a proprietary alloy that is a good bit "better" than 1095..which is a GREAT steel by the way) that I have otherwise worn out beyond use..These are hand forged and very sharp. You can strike a spark with flint or chert on either the blade spine..or... on the grip area as I put in a "strike pad" on the back of the grip just for that purpose. These do NOT come with a sheath.

These are something neat and a bit unusual..these rings are hand made from actual coinage. We can use US, Mexican, Canadian, British..Australian, Old German....just abut any solid Ag or Cu based coin of the appropriate size for just about any given ring size from 5 up to 19 1/2.
These rings are made so you can "read" both sides..inside and out and can be made to show either the Obverse ("Heads) or the Reverse ("Tails") on the outside, per your request.
We can us just about any coin from any country that is made of the "right" materials. We can do any year that is available(some of the rarer "collector" coins will have an impact on the price)
We can use foreign coinage as well, if we can get them, per request.
Currently we have a selection of sizes in US Quarters, Kennedy halves as well as the Sacajawea Dollar and Presidential Dollar coins. We can also use Eisenhower , Morgan, and Peace Dollar coins.
So if you are looking for something out of the ordinary and would like to obtain one of these..please give us a call.. We try to keep a good selection of sizes and coins in stock. If we have to make one up and we have the coin..we can have it made usually the same day we get the request.
Post 1964 coin rings for US Coinage are priced at $20.00 each.
