<Ashe> leaned over the unfinished axe heads and carefully marked out the matching patterns he’d be inlaying into the steel. Two wolves, stylized in a Nordic pattern that would follow the shape of the head and then the haft. It was delicate work, but Ashe didn’t mind. Afterall, these were for a friend and the longer he spent working on the mundane the longer before reality would rip his face off like a raging garou.

<Ashe> found a meditative peace in his work. It was relaxing to mark out each pattern and see the flow of the lines as they were drawn on the metal. He debated have them as the raw impressions or inlaying a counter metal, but he liked the idea of an inset relief the best.
