    Thank you Jstrange. :] I used to post things for sale here on Bladeforums, but then after a while got caught up in various commissions or requests, some of which have turned into some of the best things I've ever made, but have often been very time consuming, derailing, and worrying. Otherwise, everything else has been spoken for or requested before it could be listed, or a regular customer was kind enough to acquire a blade when asked (very appreciated, fellas). A large number of blades have gone into the vortices of Europe or Florida. Seriously, people from Florida seem to love these things. The Siberian Slasher project was also a total failure at making an "efficient" run of machetes, HA! :D

    Having just about caught up with everything, with great delight I can finally work on projects that have been driving me MAD as they dance within my head, taunting to be brought to life, and with them will swiftly come major refinements to all of the blades forever after. Without making the ones that need to be made, there will be almost no progress. So I'm trying to avoid special commissions for now.

    What I'm getting at is, there should finally be some up for sale pretty soon, but they will be, uh...abnormal. If you'd like a machete or normal blade tool, then by all means, just ask and I'll do my best!

    For the reader:

    There are two more Siberian Slashers remaining, numbers 7 and 8. Both of them have some unfortunately-placed deep hammer blows midway down the blade on the left flank.

    As of now, the rest of the BT23 ti alloy stock is intended for use in two or three ballistic armor vests, one shield, and for the cores of san mai titanium alloy sword billets. There should also be some one-off blades made from it as well, depending on what's left.

    Yes! King of Mad Science Forge subforum!

    Dramatization: an unwitting forumite wanders into Mad Science Forge subforum and asks a question about titanium swords...
