    Looks great I really like that piece of stag you're using. Can't wait to see the blade and how it all goes together.

    Another great knife J! I wish I lived close so I could apprentice with you. I'd sweep the shop, whatever just to learn from someone that talented.

    Wrought iron pommel forged from the same piece as the spacer behind the guard...

    [​IMG]

    ...pommel thickness, she needs to be on the thicker side to balance this sucker out...

    [​IMG]

    ...rough shaped...

    [​IMG]

    ...I was planning on doing something a little different so here is the pommel face half way tooled...

    [​IMG]

    I've finished the tooling and etched the pommel. I'm planning on doing the finished assembly today and should have her buffed and finished by tomorrow or the next day.

    OK, she's all done now. Here is a face shot of the completed pommel. I tooled the face with my flexi-shaft and dental cutters...

    [​IMG]

    ...and a side view...

    [​IMG]

    Here are some finished pix, they're bad shop pix but, I'll be sending her out for some pro-photos by the end of the week. I'll probably still snap a couple nicer ones in the photo box before sending her out and paste them up here. She's about 16 1/2" long overall and is a real handful.

    I pre-set everything with crazy glue to fit it up. It resists the heat from shaping and a good knock on the bench will seperate it again for etching and what not. Then I reassemble with epoxy as I set up the handle and the pommels are threaded.

    Talent is just years of practice my friend. Anything I can do to help though, just let me know.
