That's very similar to one I've made. I achieved the collar via a 6 through 1 pattern, and the same weave down the front section for extra protection. I can't quite tell from the photos but is that the same method?

Hi Anthony, yes is a very dense 6 in 1 for the collar, the mantle is standard 4 in 1 with tailoring where needed. Its the same pattern as the BM one. Glad I didn't do the riveting, I'd have gone mad.

OK, Mark, where did you get it? I'd be very much interested in having one myself.

Very, very nice. Are the links on the throat of thicker wire than those in the mantel?

What is the 'BM'?

I'll second the 'who made it' question.

Thank you for sharing and best wishes for 2013.

The BM is the British Museum

The wire on the neck is the same, or possibly even smaller, but are doubled up, 6 in 1 instead of 4

PM you about the maker

Ooh nice, and it looks well made. Can I enquire about who made it?
