Restoring an Old Moraknife by DanoGambler
Restoring an Old Moraknife
I have no Idea how old this knife is. The only thing I know is that it was old and worn when I was little. Since then, it has been hammered, bent, forgotten in the dirt for years and generally misstreated in pretty much every way possible.
I found this just recently and were overwhelmed by nostalgia. I just had to give this knife some TLC. I straightened the blade (it's an old laminated blade from the time when mora still made iron "san mai" knifes with a good steel in between. Thereby the line along the edge. Today, they're still laminated, but it's all carbon steel so the knife will eventually get stressed and snap. This knife however can be bent and straightened countless times without breaking), grinded away all the rust, trued the geometry polished it and rightened the peen to better secure the handle, that had begub to rattle.
And now, 20 years later, it's back in action! ;3

Arrow Pendant by DanoGambler
Arrow Pendant
A little forgework that I made for a very tiny little friend of mine^^ It's an arrow pendant for Skade, daughter of two of my friends and neighbors :3 It was made for her nameday.
It's smoothed blunt and safe, made from a piece of old iron that I dug up. It's inspired by some points I've seen from early iron age, with a tang instead of a socket. I curled up the tang so that it could be worn.
I engraved with runes and roman numbers, "Skade, 20.11.14"

Skade is the name of one of the old norse gods. She's the godess of hunt and winter travel/skeeing. She's almost always depicted with her bow and arrows. Thereby this pendant :3

Rules:
1. Pick a character you've created.
2. Fill in the questions/statements as if you were that character.
3. Tag at least four people to do this meme.

Your character: Kahán Griverion. (General of one of the biggest Naronian legions and Military Tribune of Berfall. Droran )
1. What is your name?
Kahán.

2. Do you know why you were named that?
Hmmm.. Is this question of importance? I have many matters at hand and very little time for mere smalltalk. Hm? Imperative you say? Is this a request from the capital? Well then.. The generals will have to wait a moment..
My name was given to me by my fater. It means "The Eternal" in our native tongue.. Not overly fond of it, as it has given me quite a lot of unwanted preassure.. He's a rather... keen person, my father.


3. Single or taken?
I'm a married man, if that's what you're asking.

4. Have any abilities or powers?
Military progress doesn't come from "powers" or "magic". I haven't been bested with a sword since the last hit my mentor managed to make, I freed Vanerheim from it's northern invasion and kept my place as General and military Tribune for several years. Everything made possible by me and my best men and the soldiers they lead. No "Powers" needed.

5. Stop being a Mary Sue!
Do you even know who I am? I shouldn't have to ask you to watch your tone.

6. What's your eye colour?
Violet. It's always been a mystery to me..

7. How about hair colour?
*rises the scales above one of his eyes* Well.. Black? Does scales count?

8. Have you any family members?
My wife and daughters are back home in Berfall, our capital. My father is there too, probably keeping an eye on his own.

9. Oh, how about pets?
Not fitted for military facilities. Exept the horses of course. But we don't have any in this particular one.

10. That's cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don't like...?
I don't like to keep people waiting for me.. *glares*

11. Do you have any activities/hobbies you like to do?
Look around. *shows the late evening scene of the Naronian military facility with it's effective puls and ever going motion.* I can't do much more. When I'm home, I'm usually stuck in plans for future campains, or attending the cenate or leading a trial... When thinking about it, being home probably means more "work" than being out here. 

12. Have you hurt anyone in any way before?
You have to, if you are to live in this world. If you think life is just, then you're very lost my friend. We wouldn't have come this far without hurting people. You can't stop a war without hurting people. Our relm is so much bigger than any persons suffering. That's the hard truth.

13. Ever... Killed someone?
I'm sorry, are you bovine?! This is the military. I'm a general. You can guess as much as you like.

14. What kind of animal are you?
I'm a Nightbloom Salamander.

15. Name your worst weakness.
They are many, but I know them well so I mostly have no problem avoiding them.

16. Do you look up to anyone at all?
Most of them are gone. There are some men and women I admire. Most of them walk their own path.

17. Are you straight, gay or bisexual?
Is this a joke? In any case, my answer is that I follow the path that our creator has given us. Same sex relations are not an option.

18. Do you go to school?
Not for many years. I go to the school of war every morning in stead.

19. Ever want to marry and have kids one day?
I already told you about My wife and daughters, didn't I?

20. Do you have fan girls/fan boys?
I'm sorry, I don't understand the question.

21. What are you most afraid of?
Can't think of anything right now. What are we all afraid of? Pain? Shame? Loss?

22. What do you usually wear? 
I don't "usually" wear one specific garb. I have a set of armor for any occasion and situation. During the evenings, I wear an ordinary qualtaan. Silk, mostly.

23. What's one food that tempts you?
It's interesting how pork-poridge out in the field taste better than roasted rare beef with grilled beats in the city...

24. How many friends do you have?
I honestly don't really have time for friends. I have my contacts in the cities and the cenate and my generals, whom I respect. But the more you have, the more you have to loose.

25. What's your favorite place?
My backyard at home, in my gardens. I can actually sit there for hours..

24. Am I annoying you?
Funny you'd ask. Yes, yes you are.

25. Well, it's not over!
Then get it over with! I sure have one more letter to wright this evening.

26. What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)?
I'm Nobilitas. My family is one of the oldets in the realm. It's hard to hit higher than that. 

27. What are your thoughts on pie?
Are you sent to test my patience? The top generals of the realm are waiting for me and you ask me a bout pie?

28. Favorite drink?
Wine. Are we done?

29. Are you interested in anyone?
No.

30. That was a stupid question...
YES.

32. Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean? 
*closes his eyes for a moment. Takes a deep breath* Both. 

33. What's your type?
Next.

34. Any fetishes?
*closes his eyes again. Obviously fightingt he urge to send this idiot to Kôrak*
No.

35. Seme or uke?
Understandable language, please.

36. Camping or indoors?
I'm going to my tent, the guards will see you out! *walks away quickly*

I tag: (no preassure)

Time to make a Scabbard  #6 by DanoGambler
Time to make a Scabbard #6
Here's the final picture for now. The only thing missing is the metall "shoe" at the tip. I am seriously thinking of using horn for that as well. First I was thinking of forging the socket from a piece of iron... but it would be awesome to have something that matches the raven above ;3
Anyways! The scabbard is ready to be used!! Of to battle!!

Time to make a Scabbard #5
I used blackened wax which I worked into the grooves and then burned into place. I then scraped off the exes wax to create a clear and crisp pattern. I'm quite happy with how it turned out^^
As I mentioned before, this will be the piede that connects the scabbard with the belt.

DanoGambler's Profile Picture

Joel Wennerholm
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Sweden
Name: Joel Wennerholm
Age: 24


Lighthearted, with a relaxed philosophy of life. Mostly easy to talk with but sometimes a bit off (In his own world). Loves to sing. Writes alot but mostly in Swedish (Still finds English a bit difficult from time to time, so please have patience)

For me, the closeness of the nature, the woods and the lakes is very important. I find serenity and joy in the surrounding beauty and my friends. You could say that I'm a little bit of a hobbit. I'm trying to feel and enjoy life in my every breath.

Apperance: Almost like a chubby Viking, with long hair, a brown beard, blue eyes and with sword, axe and shield close at hand.

Greatest Joy: The time I spend with my friends, my craft, and my pencils. A good wine, rum, wiskey, ale and of course mead often makes a nice evening even nicer^^

Greatest Fear: The Industrialism.

Current state: Working withing the Healthcare with elders, continuing the evergoing work with my comic Droran and preparing a Role-play Game after the comic.

I'm repeating after AudeS here :D
Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
