Re: Visiting a swordsmith

I remember Peter visiting one with you years ago. We went up to the little room and the piles of money started being passed over and if I remember correctly that was just for doing the fittings.
Peter, this is the same smith. I'm not sure if he ability to never age isn't even more impressive than his smithing. He doesn't do fittings, but I do remember talking about the prices for some of the lovely pieces he showed us, and yes, they are expensive works of art. I was looking at a couple of pieces that were given to me years ago, and was amazed again at their beauty and the incredible craftsmanship and artistry.
