Fantastic looking blades. I'd be intrigued to see some pics of your forge. Something I'd like to put together if it can be done in a modern, feasible way.

see first page of this thread there's a picture
it needn't bee all high teck, a few insulating bricks and a propane torch will do the job, also an anvil is not nessesary iether i used a machinist's leveling block and i've seen
curb-stones used any heavy piece of iron would work.

That's some exceptional craftsmanship there gooseman. :|

I love the first knives handle scales and mosaic pins. You don't happen to do commissions do you?
