Congrats to our friend Jordan Priestley for winning the Modern Muscle class, at last Sunday’s NMCA West Hotchkis autocross, at Auto Club Speedway, in the JDP Motorsports 6th gen Camaro SS on Detroit Speed/JRi coilovers, BFGoodrich Rival S tires, and Forgeline one piece forged monoblock GA1R wheels! Nobody puts in more real-world hands-on 6th gen Camaro development than Jordan and the team at JDP, so they certainly deserve this victory and their current lead in the Hotchkis Cup point standings!

Huginn + Muninn

“O'er Mithgarth Hugin and Munin both
Each day set forth to fly;
For Hugin I fear lest he come not home,
But for Munin my care is more.”

Above excerpt from the Poetic Edda poem Grímnismál

Fast and light it swings
Like Huginn’s feathered wings.
Quick and brute the seax
Like Muninn’s angry beak.

15″ Blade (wrought iron, 1084, 15n20, 80crv2)
5/5” Handle (wrought iron, elk antler, teak)
20.5” Overall
1.2 Pounds
2.125” POB from the hilt

Order a sword built specifically for you. From initial design of concept through the fire and final handle assembly watch your sword come to life. Scabbard included with purchase and will vary on materials and decoration. I will start with a concept illustration based off of requested time period and other considerations. Then I will make a schematic and start the build. I blog my progress as I go so you can follow along with me. Timeline says 9-10 weeks but it can take longer depending on what is decided on.
*note: swords displayed are my creations, however items pictured are from previous builds and are not for sale.

Also, I just released some new pricing options for various lengths. Give it a look.


*Must be 18 years of age or older to purchase.

When I finished this knife, the simple fact of making a blade out of a motorcycle chain represented a great victory. I was very excited and so I ignored some execution flaws and imperfections. I just felt the shape of the handle was not good enough. In order to soothe my mind, I undid the handle and rebuild it, adding a damascus guard. Here is the result.
