I am in the process of buying a modern interpretation of a seax from Michael "Tinker" Pearce. Tinker is a well-known swordsmith from the Northwest who also makes some absolutely gorgeous knives. He has a couple of beauties for sale at the moment if you go to his site. But I just want to show off the knife that I am buying.

Tinker's "Items for sale" page* where the other knives are is:

You might want to look at some of the Scots Dirks that he has made. They are absolutely lovely.

i like the 'camp' knife - has the look of a fighter to me, but 200 smackers is a bit high for my current budget.

You have to see and feel Tinker's work to believe the quality involved. I'm happily ponying up the $225 for that Handsax and thinking myself lucky that I got there in time.

Uncle Bill always used to say: "If it hasn't got a Cho, it isn't a khukhuri!"
Pearce does some nice work and is probably undervalued in today's market. Buying one of his pieces as an investment might be a wise choice. Investment pieces can't get used though:(
