amazing work, they look like they were modeled in 3d instead of hand crafted

okay, question: You say you nitre blued the blade, but how? I thought nitre bluing entailed heating the bath to temperatures in excess of 500 degrees F which would usually threaten the temper of the blade and ruin heat-treated parts. Do you have a method to avoid this or did you sacrifice function for... for just stunning form?

That is insane. Are these functional, or too delicate to be used?

They are actually built like a tank, but of course the surfaces could scratch easy if you were to seriously use them.

You can see how they are made here:
