    New Stuff at AT?

    I've been in kind of stealth mode so far this year, some intentionally, some unintentionally....... I'm still behind, though over the last few days have made strides in catching up.......

    I need to get my webwork caught up too........

    But the falchions came out nice {need to get them on the site too}........

    The biggest "stealth" thingie, has been the "Oakeshott Series" revisited, and the thickerer {intentionally misspelled} material swords.......

    At this time, I have the new XIII, a couple of XIIIa's, a XV {thickerer material, nicknamed the "Little Stiffy"}, a XVIa and a few others already made. A XVa blade {"midsize stiffy"} is going to heat this afternoon.

    There are four thickerer longswords that are still "stealth", the DN1508 hasn't had much said of it, there's two heavier wider XVIIIb swords that haven't had much said of it, and the 1446 has reached production stage, and is much different than the current photos.......

    The "Oakeshott Series" swords are my interpretation of "battlefield swords". Swords that should be able to cut well {except the XV's and XVII's, which are thrusting swords}, and take the occassional lick on a helmet, shield rim, and other swords and keep on ticking......

    The thickerer swords are of two philosophies, faster handling and rigidity without giving up other performance features, and/ or dealing with the "armored battlefield", or both......

    Some of the thickerer swords will fit into my "Oakeshott Series".....

    The first hollow ground blade is being machined tomorrow. This is something I've shied away from for years, but I'm going to try again.......

    Reviews...... I really didn't send any out last year, but there are two out this year, one leaving soon, and one more going shortly afterwards........

    I'm also going to try and post updates on the following place weekly.......

    Hmm, heard this mentioned last week when cleaving a few bottles......I should have asked more questions. Now i'll have to wait a bit.
    I'm lost---- I've gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

    Any word

    Any word on when we might see an Atrim Jian? I seem to recall there being some mention of such being "in the works".

    Did the idea get scrapped?
    Feel free to Flame me...
    I probably deserve it.

    I was going to ask too, but since Gus already has his falchions, and "thickerers" on the table, he's already got alot going on.

    I too, would love to see a Jian in the future. With his Taiji background, I'm sure he would come up with a wonderful blade for both form and function

    Going to try hollow ground blades again, eh Auld Dawg?? Right on!!

    What no AT-1461? By the way...what type pf blade will that be? Same profile as the 1423 but longer and thicker? I cannot wait to hold it.

    Questions, Questions, Questions

    Any XIIIB's in the line up?

    I assume that you'll eventually hit all the Oakeshott types w/your new "Oakeshott Series". Will you be trying to do some Lenticular cross-section blades?

    Is the hollow-ground blade a longsword or a single hander?

    Hi Jason

    Yes, I'm doing several XVIIIb's,likely going to be at least two of them on the XVIIIb list......

    Of the more obscure types, I'm looking at a long XIX, longsword, 37 inch blade/ricasso, 11 inch handle, 50+ inch total length.......

    The XX looks to be a two fuller into one, and a blade length of 43 inche, total length approx 60........

    The XVII.......... hmm........ at least 37 inch blade, and 4lbs. A can opener..... no whoosy cut and thrust sword here, but a true thrusting can opener.......

    Lenticular? Probably........

    Hollow grinding? The first one is an arming sword, blade running now. It'll go to heat treat tomorrow...... I'm really interested in pushing this blade.........

    If the singlesword comes out, then I'll do a bastard sword, and if I like that, then a longsword, then we'll see......

    How about an XIa? I don't think anyone has made one of those in around 800 years

    hi Gus
    theres some interesting stuff coming up and that's for sure. You must be sick from hearing me an my "where's my sword ?" queries, but don't worry I can wait for such a work of art, but I I seem to recall you said that you were gonna put the 1434 back on your website. So I was wondering if my sword was gonna be the one that you pictured online as I would be as proud as punch to be able to go on and say see that sword thats mine not just like mine but that actual one, silly i know but thats me
