Re: Yet another sword practicality thread

Great answers and great links! As for what elvish folk influence the forging of the blade, I guess I have to understand where Angarth got some of his training/influence as a smith and decide who would have influenced Ruinferil to begin with. The influence she received on her first adventure would ha...

Re: Yet another sword practicality thread

I PERSONALLY hated what they did with Orcrist. From a practical point of view - I don't think handling any of the replicas will teach you anything, as the official ones were all made to just to look pretty on a wall. For what it's worth a friend I knew back around '03 when the films were just out ha...

Yet another sword practicality thread

Okay, so after stalling as long as I can, this next year I am going to take the plunge into actual sword making. (No, I'm not taking orders on any at this time. :mrgreen: ) Anyway, I am planning to make blades for each of the members of my family. Each one will have its own flare and will be part of...

Re: Home made forge question

I commented on your other thread before I found this one. There is a young Englishman, Alec Steele. You may be familiar with him from youtube. He has online classes. One of them is $30 US. I bought it. In the class, he gives some good pointers to be up and forging for around $100. I mention this bec...

Re: Stump shooting?

You are inspiring me to get back with it. But with pinched nerves in my shoulder and neck, I'll have to start slow and light. It could be good therapy.

Re: An Excellent Opportunity

It was a lot of fun. I regret not being active here for quite a while now. But I am seeing more face-to-face opportunities lately. I do hope everyone knows that I'm still a ranger and I'm still around. I'm hoping to be of more value here when I fully return.

An Excellent Opportunity

In early October I got the opportunity to be the demonstrating blacksmith for a local event. The time period was colonial. Since I didn't have anything really colonial, I dressed in my ranger clothing to smith. Tonight, the lady that put the event together had an appreciation meal at her home. She a...

Re: knives and other things

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I needed them about now as I tweaked an injured nerve in my shoulder yesterday in the forge. This is getting old. Anyway, I'm willing to let the file knives go for $75.00 shipped CONUS. If there is anything else you would like to know the prices of, just let me kn...
