I have a new toy... [May. 26th, 2009|04:24 pm]
Mark Rimmell
This is a bronze khopesh




It was made by my friend Neil.
It's based on one found in Tutankhamun's tomb.

I now have to decide what sort of wood I'm going to use for the hilt plates.

There's more of Neil's work here.

Very handy for those really big papyrus letters from the Pharaoh.
