    Tritonworks website back up

    First let me apologize if I'm posting this in the wrong place. I haven't logged in here (or most other places) for a bit, and I see things have changed. Not knowing where else to put this I thought...

    My impression is that L6 when properly heat treated does indeed have some intrinsic properties that make it a tougher sword. It is also difficult to properly introduce differential hardening in L-6,...

    Seconded on that one. In my opinion Leo is doing some very nice pieces for very modest prices for what you get.

    Yep, I appreciate the pictures as well, I hadn't seen them to this point.

    I'm guessing that's their ad copy? If the heat treat is good (and in this case that would mean that they should have left the tang and shoulders of the blade softer than the blade) and the brazing...

    It looks quite rough in terms of the blade grind and the fittings are fairly mundane. I don't know what "practical use" means, typically that's an excuse by a vendor for poor fit and finish. ...

    Thanks for sharing this article Kirk! As you say what a remarkable job by the conservationists!

    Darn Bruce, sorry to hear about that. You and Hugh are getting to be quite the pair. Take care of yourself, you are the only one of you, that you've got! :)

    Looks good Jeroen. Am I the only one that got a chuckle out of the bottle openers?

    Thanks for the pics Jeroen. I constantly stunned by the incredible work done by ancient craftsman using what by today's standards were primitive tools and NO electricity. I wish I could duplicate...

    It truly is a remarkable piece. There's four swordsmiths on my must have list. I own a piece by one of them. Mr. Barta is one of the others. I've not commissioned a piece with him because I keep...

    Okay here is Hugh's new sword. Try not to drool all over it, cleaning that off a sword is a hassle! This is absolutely a phenomenal piece and couldn't be going to a better home.

    Bloody heck, of course I completely forgot to take care of this with the weekend and all. I've just sent myself a note to take care of this tonight. Sorry about the delay Hugh.

    Hey Hugh,

    I'll see about getting them up there tonight if no one beats me to it. It really is an incredible sword. One doesn't really expect anything less from Mr. Barta, but really it's amazing...

    At a guess I'd say that depends entirely on the maker in question's skill level. If he's a Patrick Barta that would be a steal, if he's never made a blade before you are getting ripped off.
