Some non-doodle art for a change! I put more than a few hours into this anyway, haha. I guess this piece is supposed to be about how things change little by little as they get passed on through word of mouth…but mostly it’s about dapper pipe-smoking dogs in tweed jackets;) Hope everyone likes it!
Blacksmith Ric Furrer in his workshop holding his crucible steel Ulfberht blade. It has almost been a 1000 years since a metallugically accurate Ulfberht has been made. Ric heated the blade in a traditional brick forge. Ulfberht were the best Viking swords ever crafted, the blades had very little slag and were meant to bend while in use. Only 171 real Ulfberht swords have ever been recovered.
