Some recent bladed thingies
« on: November 25, 2016, 12:06:57 pm »
I've been making a few blades of bone and slate recently, and gradually hafting them up - here are the first two, a few more will follow as i marry the other bits together over the next few days or so-ish.

This is a big and wide slate blade with a pear wood handle, fixed it with with pine glue and a couple of bands of real sinew.  There is a dab of epoxy under all that other stuff for lasting durability, just an insurance policy really!







It's a bit of a beast

And this one is apple, a bit more elegant than the other:





I've no idea if anyone ever uses clubs in their rituals - but i like this next one just for general prancing around the house, pretending it's the cave i've always wanted:





Made from a piece of ash that i've had lying around for several years and with a bone blade and leather hand wrap.

I've been in a very cave-y mood of late, it's a lot of fun making stuff like this :)

Nice work! And what a fantastic skill to have.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

That looks almost-disturbingly like a femur bone! Can I join in the prancing? :D:

Indeed!  I've built a small fire on my rug for everyone to dance around and am currently using strawberry jam for war-paint :D  bring biscuits
