A New Knight

I know, I know!  It's about time that I get around to posting something.  I've been so busy with our new baby, remodeling our house, and a half dozen other things that I haven't had time to sleep, let alone post anything.  In fact, I have the baby in my arms right now and trying to type with only one hand.  Kind of slow going! 

Thanks for sticking with me and not running off to someone else's blog.  I'm also down to only one knife available for purchase in the Knife Gallery.  MAN I'M BEHIND!!!  I promise to spend some time next week and get a few more made.  I just got in a shipment of some really beautiful wood, so the handles from the next batch should be something spectacular.

I hope to get more time to do some serious carving soon.  In the mean time, here's a little project that I've started working on.

I thought that I would have some fun and carve another knight.  The face turned out really nice.  He has kind of cocky grin, like a knight would have while looking down on the peasants.  I've just started roughing out the body, so not much to see there.  I thought that I would make him kind of short and skinny and give him a really big shield and maybe a spear or polearm, something tall to accentuate his small stature.  I'll trick him out with some other addons so he looks snappy.  He should be a handsome fellow if he works out like I hope.

Thanks again for sticking with me.  Here are a few more pics of the head.
