Over the years Francis has worked,
literally, on thousands of swords, their fittings, and their scabbards.
most of these were the property of private owners and so pictures
were never made. We are currently trying to gather as many photos
as we can of the work that Francis has done over the years on blades,
fittings, and koshirae. Please come back and visit to
see if anything new
has been added.
The following pages show just a small slice of Francis' work.
