My Work

Diamond Anniversary Rings

Matching pair of diamond-anniversary rings. Rings are 18k yellow- and white-gold, respectively, with celtic-knot accents in the corresponding metal – yellow on white, white on yellow.

Bowie Knife

An even bigger knife – 15” overall. Differentially-quenched 5160 blade, hafted with antler, nickel-silver and maple then elaborately file-worked. Balance is exceptional.

Colonial Fire Tongs

From a set of 18th c fireplace tools. Wrought with precision.

Fire-tool Stand – Detail

Detail of a stand for fireplace tools, showing complexity of finials.

Walnut Chest

Small dovetailed walnut chest, with forged iron hardware from extant 18thc New England examples.

Mjolnir Mk III

Third in the series – a dramatically reworked, unlimited vorsion of the Mk I. Articulated wolf-clasps grasp the troth-ring.

Katana

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.

Mjolnir Mk II

Second in my series of Sterling silver Thor's Hammer pendants. Fenris the wolf leers from the face.

Rococo Pipe Tomahawk

Pipe tomahawk with light engraving and pewter accents.

Mjolnir MkI

Sterling silver Thor's Hammer pendant. A significant pair of ravens adorn the face.

Lacey Cross Monument

A large, contemporary Celtic Cross for a family memorial.

Small Knives

Three small hunting knives, all 5160. From top, hafts are antler/cedar burl, Koa/Maple/Brass and Walnut with copper pins.
