    new buckler

    this is a custom order I just finshed, not a sword but some thing I figuered you all would like to take a look.
    if this is the wrong forum please feel free to move it!

    the buckler is rased from 12 gage steel hardened after forming the center is brass with a carved rampent dragon the handle is steel with a oak and stitched leather grip.

    let me know what you think of it.

    It is absolutely stunning work. Me wantum!! I used to like the combination of broadsword and buckler. Go good with a falchion or even a gladius as well.

    I dont care that its not a sword...its awsome! Really amazing work, I could tell it was gonna be neat seeing the thumbnails at the bottom of your post, but open them up and WOW! The beaten look and quality of the carving are beautiful.

    Gee Matt, I thought you guys were flat out with ironwork! Hasn't hurt the creativity at all, thats for sure. First the Hanger, (which you really oughta post if it hasn't sold) now this stuff!

    thank you for all the kind words!

    I feel I should point out that this was a not all my work, my partner Jamie did the rasing, peening on the face and rolled the edges on the main body, Peter did the forming on the brass, and some of the assembley and finshing work. I did the heat treating, most of the polishing /grinding, the carving, the handle and the leather work on the grip and lineing.

    Sad. At least it isn't around to tempt me anymore... I really don't need another sword! (However appealing!).
