Re: Patterned fabric, Dwarven or not??

Well, the houndstooth weave is certainly old enough to be pre-medieval: The oldest known occurrence of houndstooth is the Gerum Cloak[3], a garment uncovered in a Swedish peat bog, dated to between 360 and 100 BC.[4] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houndstooth#Design_and_history https://historiska.se...

Patterned fabric, Dwarven or not??

I've just been to my local fabric store, they had this cheep on clear out: https://i.imgur.com/JCJgb0v.jpg I liked it so I bought it but I can't quite decide.

Re: Nemo's Dwarf Kit

That's an amazing kit, I really like your interpretation of the reference of a pack hook from The Hobbit, I puzzled over that for quite a while and ended up deciding that it might mean a hook on the end of a burden strap of some kind. The frame pack has a really dwarven feel to it, the only thing st...

Re: Some new stuff

Thank you :P Very cool! I assume you made all those hangers for your goodies as well? It looks awesome! Do you think you might ever "Dwarf-ify" your sword as well? Or are you leaving it as is? Yep, I made the hangers, although there wasn't much to the sword one: note the angular profile fo...

Re: The Sword Beneath the Cloak (Odigan work)

Nice :P I agree totally with Greg, It fit's what I imagined from the book exactly and getting rid of the polished shiny guard and pommel works so well, no glint to give away your position in the trees

Odigan's made your design amazing :mrgreen:

Re: A Project for Iodo?

I saw this DIY and thought of Iodo: https://bushcraftusa.com/forum/threads/shepherds-axe-a-manly-cane.253819/#post-4481523 It doesnt look like it would cost too much to make. Now that is cool, a walking Axe for less money, I've cant say I haven't been thinking about making something similar, thanks...
