Hi Sam,
Good to see you are still with us! The article has been the pretext to 
revisit and update a scene I did back in 2009 (I never showed it here 
though) about my very personal view on Grendel, the demonic villain in 
the Beowulf ("/HWÆT!/"). For the sword I use Silo and a couple of 
photographs of Bronze Age blades as templates. I am working on it when I 
have the time. I'll be back when done.
