New workshop!

I have a new workshop!

I was lucky some friends jumped in to move all my equipment into the new workshop. It’s a massive, enormous space. It seems unreal to me know that I’ve been working in a small stable next to my house all those years.

Damascus steel dagger!

Finally, I finished this 240 layer damascus steel dagger with an ebony handle. A few months ago a fanatic dagger collector made this custom order. He told me he was a big fan of the classic Fairbairn-Sykes dagger, so I based my design on that....
