Michigan Witches Ball 2010

I am very excited to be a sponsor for this great event! To find out more about one of Michigan's best parties, click the link above.

All sales are now being handled through my Etsy shop: www.splendidfish.etsy.com
Click on the link above to see what is currently available.
Don't worry, friends, it's still me behind the scenes!

I've added a new section called

Gods, Heroes, and a Couple of Regular Guys:
Corbin's Tall Tales

When I create a new piece
of design work, it often happens that they come, much like a baby with a silver spoon in it's mouth, bearing a story. Unfortunately, when I sell a piece, the story is sometimes lost with it. I've decided to collect these stories into a section all
their own, for your enjoyment.

Enjoy them!

Don't forget to click on the BLUE WORDS anywhere on this site to enter
new worlds of mythic imagination.

Overview of Athames

Here are overview shots of the six hand crafted athames I made in 2007. Click on the description to see additional detail pictures of each. When inquiring about availability, be sure to refer to the code number (I didn't give these names, like "The Merlin," because I figured you oughtta name it yourself).

I now sell only through my Etsy shop. Please follow this link to check availablitlity: www.splendidfish.etsy.com

Code: IF. This is the most massive of the family. It's about 18 inches long, and big and meaty. If you're looking for something that makes a statement, or that needs to be seen from the back row, or something to match your heroic proportions, this is it. Because of the peculiar shape of the hilt it is most comfortable for a right hander, but it isn't too bad in the left hand either. For detail pictures, click here.
Code: IE. This one, on the other hand, is the baby bear of the family. It's about 12 inches long, and nicely balanced out by the long and graceful quillon. Wife of de Corbin says that this is the prettiest one of the bunch. It's perfect for somebody who works alone, or doesn't want to be ostentatious, or is a bit on the petite side. But don't imagine that it's a toy - it's rock solid. For additional pictures, click here.
The remaining four daggers are all very similar - they all use an early Scotish style dirk blade with some nice decorative file work along the spine. Very trim and elegant. Length is about 17 inches, which is pretty big, but their slender figures give them each a delicate feel.
Code: ID. This one is just a wee bit different from the remaining three in that the end of the bone forms a natural sort of ram's horn. More pictures? Cick here.
