Small dovetailed walnut chest, with forged iron hardware from extant 18thc New England examples.
18k White Gold pendant, set with a pair of elk-ivory buttons. Satin finish with mirror highlights. Shown with matching elk-ivory earrings.
An even bigger knife – 15” overall. Differentially-quenched 5160 blade, hafted with antler, nickel-silver and maple then elaborately file-worked. Balance is exceptional.
A hammer poll version of a famous movie tomahawk. Client request. Steel.
Entirely hand-forged and polished – an exercise in patience. 11,000 layers of 1090/1040 steel kobuse-welded around a soft-iron core. Dimensions taken from a Kamakura-period Bizen. Fitted with a quilted-maple saya to reflect my western sensibilites.
Third in the series – a dramatically reworked, unlimited vorsion of the Mk I. Articulated wolf-clasps grasp the troth-ring.
Three small hunting knives, all 5160. From top, hafts are antler/cedar burl, Koa/Maple/Brass and Walnut with copper pins.
