Here are average pics of the latest roundel, I'll try to get better ones soon :

Image

Image

All hand made in the same unknown steel as some other knives I made, differential temper (it would show if you etch the blade), mild steel fittings, oak wood, brass inlays & rivets, fileworked handle edges (will show on other pics) ; scabbard is veg tanned leather all hand-worked and a bit seasoned, and mild steel end.

It will be available at about 280-300 euros.


Oh THAT is nice! I'm going to pass that around.

More new stuff (sort of)

Postby Fab » 25 Jul 2007 18:28

Primitive Balithom :

Image

Mild steel 'flintknap' textured U-shaped handles, latchless. 1075 steel wharncliff blade, clay-quenched (see the lineon the pic), tempered to yellow. OAL 255 mm open, 145 mm folded, 110 * 25 mm blade. And man, does it cut.

This is a 318 g beast. I sense many bruised knuckles and fingers ahead.

I wanted it to be sturdy and organic/primitive-looking, and I'm not too unhappy, though there are still a few scratches here and there.

I can't remember if you wanted a sheath for this one, Thom ? If so, tell me ASAP.

If I was to make another one similar to this, it would be in the 300 euros range.




Different, and available for sale at about 120 euros (haggling is possible still) :

A Faërie folder :
Image

Blade is an old file, full quench and tempered to brown, handle is oak, inlays are brass. OAL 299 m, 118 * 20 mm blade, 200 mm when folded. Will make a custom matching sheath for an extra 30-40 euros depending on the complexity of the design.
Given the time it took, a price of 200 to 250 euros would be more reasonable for this model - this is a special offer.

If you'd like, plain is fine though if it's too much of a big deal.

It could happen that I *might* be making something similar...


In the meantime, here's a little thing I finished today :

Image

Old file blade, differential HT (you can see a very sublte line) tempered to yellow, oak handle with brass inlays. Can't give you dimensions, as its new owner picked it up this afternoon.

Beautiful knives Fab

Do you ship to the USA? How much for a roundel or a medieval type dagger?

I don't see why I wouldn't.

I can't ask less than 200 euros for a simple roundel dagger, the price may vary according to the complexity and technicality of the object.

Thing is, I can't take orders at the moment. Unless a miracle happens.

You guys will be the first to know, I promise. It's not that my backlog is *that* big (only one year late on some orders), but the times ahead are certainly going to be quite full, with the PhD thing and the new baby and all...
