Excerpts from The Mystic Jeweller (Vulcan) 2.0

Amethyst Agate in silver reversible Pendant.

Sebastian removed the hilts from the kiln; he checked the solder joints, allowed them to cool slightly and quenched them in wood alcohol. He filled the hilts with molten epoxy resin and lead pellets. Sebastian created a series of barbs on the tang of each sword. He wrapped damp chamois leather around  the shoulder of the sword; clamped it in a bench vise, attached the hilt to the sword. The sword maker and the teaching masters watched Sebastian performed this process three times. Sebastian placed the hilts in cold water; the hilts now permanently attached, were hand finished. The exam took twelve days to complete; the swords were graded; all students had completed the assignment.
