Very nice. What do you use for your concepts? Orthos?

We base our lines on a variety of things, much of which is organic design and gothic cathedral architecture. Unfortunately, Orthos is unfamiliar to me.

By orthos I meant orthographic drawings i.e. front side top without perspective. Do you do any ancient weapon remakes? I'm curious about getting a replica made, or at least seeing if it's possible :)

We haven't done any replicas as of yet. But we do have some projects on the table. We might pull one or two out of our hat by the end of next year if everything goes very well. That being said, a lot of our drawing is simple 2d, no perspective single view. We let the 3d happen in the real world.

I'd love to get a replica of a scissor katar made at some point. It's an ancient Indian fist 'spike' weapon. I think it would look amazing in your style of craftsmanship, hence my inquiry :) Keep up the great work!

I'm getting into blacksmithing, and I have to say, this is a gorgeous blade. Absolutely beautiful.
