holy :moobag: , BB that really is good.
How have you managed to learn all that you do? did you train in some kind of metal fabrication industry? It obviously takes knowledge, skill and natural artistic flair i think, something of which i sadly lack. I don't have an artistic bone in my body, i can't even draw the curtains.
But i totally admire the likes of yourself, Azeroth, darksun and even that ugly man wraith (:D) who can do this kind of stuff.

Danka again (K) The woodworking side I partially learned from me Dad, I learned the sort of mechanics of it like the right way to use tools and basic joints ect, the carving I taught meself on scraps of wood. As far as metal work goes that Rohan sheil was me first project with any major metal working element I'm trying to teach meself all I can by reading everything I can get me hands on, I've already learn some v importaint basic stuff like always have rounded shoulders to the tang as if to have sharp angles this creates a weak point to the weapon.
