For Sale to fund another dream piece is my Steinvik sword with blade by Emiliano Carrillo (Sun and Stars Forge) and fittings by Matthew Berry (Hopkins Forge), more info can be found on Emiliano's website, I am looking for SOLD shipped conus for this piece which is much less then it would cost to commission directly & without a 1 year + wait time, the custom felt lined scabbard I commissioned for it from VA alone was $720 and has a custom embossing to match the grip design and custom bridge.
Payment via paypal f/f or add 4% for fees, pm me if you have any questions, thanks!
That my friend is one of the most beautiful swords I've seen in my life. Period.
Good luck with the sale! Hopefully there is nothing emergent that requires it...
nothing really serious just a desire, thanks
Stormmaster, along with Christian Short clearly suffer from, IMHO, SADD (sword attention deficit disorder)...

theres something out there I want badly, believe me when I say this is probably the cheapest anyone will ever be able to get a really high quality recreation of the steinvik made to exact specs, as it is nearly 50% off the og commission price, this is a big hit for me financially but gotta do what i gotta do i guess
Tomt24: I personally wouldn't consider 2,35m overall length as short. But the lightend rear shaft should really help reducing the sluggishness if used in one hand considering the parallel axis theorem.

MOK: Seems probable, given the shortish haft.

Tomt24: Just kidding. It is a really interesting piece. From the stats I assume it to be somewhat 1,5 handed in use. Shorter grip for spear & shield, but also be effective in a more halberd like manner if you use it 2 handed.

MOK: No! No preorders! Preorders bad! (Unless it's something I really, really, REALLY want, natch...)
Aug 8, 2020 13:47:06 GMT
Tomt24: Is this a pre-order, Mok? Let me do a prototype first...
Aug 8, 2020 13:32:49 GMT
Tomt24: It is a really interesting piece. Might be worth recreating one in the next months.

legacyofthesword: It's really rare to find original shafts/handles on artifacts. Thanks for mentioning the Lendbreen spear, I hadn't heard of it before.

Tomt24: Agree. I would personally prefer ash, but they were kind of opportunistic back then. Hickory wasn't an option in medieval europe ^^. Guess I should have started a proper Thread, will do after my exams are done.

Scott: Was the original spearshaft made from a coppiced pole? Or a sapling perhaps? Either would make the shaft less likely to break.

treeslicer: On the spear shafts, ash or hickory would be best, IMHO. Remember that they have to take impact at the head socket without breaking.

Tomt24: Seen some density and janka ratings where birch is quite similiar to ash.
Aug 7, 2020 3:18:34 GMT
Tomt24: I guess it depends on the type of birch.

lebleuchevalier: I just catalogued my collection. I have 37 bladed objects. I need to unload about 16 items to downsize. Might have a sale soon, although I only expect 7 items to actually sell. Everything else is a give away.

MOK: Birch IS pretty light. Relatively soft, too, though. Delightful wood to work with, really, I carve spoons out of it all the time.
