SWORDS FOR THE BOYS

I have been promising to make Robin, my oldest lad a new sword for a while now, and finally he drove me into the garage to get busy. I had to make one for Arthur as well so he didn't feel left out . Luckily we had a few suitable bits of wood about, and I picked up some brass screw today


I have now been asked to make a double headed battle-axe.

  1. Can I have one ? Please, please? These are tip top. I made a teardrop shield for my son, 22 years ago, and it's still going strong - now wielded by his son.

  2. These heirlooms are well worth making when you see them wieleded by your descendants, they take on that legendary aura like Excalibur. We have a Zulu shield my Father made my oldest brother (now 56) when the film came out.

  3. Re. Axe - Yeah...careful with that Eugene! (for any Pink Floyd fans out there!)

    My mother made me a Lee Enfield out of two-inch baton-rail in 1969 and it's still going strong, albeit with a couple of large splinters missing!
