The Garden Gate Revisited

I continue to work on my garden gates.  Lately I have designed a cane bolt for it. This is a drawing of it in my sketchbook.

I later went on to make a full sized drawing that I took it to my good friend Arnon Kartmazov to forge in stainless steel.  He turned the project over to his partner, a colorful Chech blacksmith Nitzan Lille.  This was the result.........

They both put their stamps into the handle

It works beautifully.
I'm thrilled.
