Excellent restoration bobi13! You have returned it to its former state as faithfully as anyone could.

Good repair job. Did you have to weld or braze the tang back onto the blade?

Thumbs up

Restoring an antique piece not only takes skill and time, but also takes passion. And I can see you put a lot in your work.

Congratulations for your amazing work!

Such artistic skills like yours are so rare these days.

Are you also accepting to do restoration works on commission? I am sure that many of us could need your help.

Exclamation Just to get ahead of any problem ...

Guys:

Questions about commissioning restoration work for specific items are best taken to PM or email. I do agree that Bobi13's restoration skills are remarkable based on the work shown here.

Thanks,

Ian.
