The raw adamas (acrylic) is set to arrive at the Adamant Studio tomorrow! I can’t wait!
My new distributor is VINK and their slogan “passion for plastics” caught my eye immediately. They’re significantly more expensive than my previous supplier Johnston Plastics but seeing as I’m now located in Helsinki, Finland, my options are limited. Still, I’ll do my best to keep prices affordable for all my fellow Shadowhunter fans.
So all you fantastic folks who have placed orders for this upcoming autumn, rejoice! The re-establishment of the Studio is coming together on schedule and I’ll be able to get crafting as soon as my tools arrive. I’ll keep you posted on arrival dates and my crafting progress as per usual.
Until the next update: this is the Adamant Studio signing off!
It’s happeniiiiiiing! Just placed an order last night and my new babies are on their way to me.
A nice badass belt sander …
And a big ol’ band saw.
For a tough material like acrylic, nothing of lesser calibre will do. As soon as I have these and my plastics in hand, I can get to crafting. Stay tuned for more news.
The Adamant Studio has received word that Julie is in need of a Seraph Blade to commemorate her birthday. In honour of this occasion, a short-sword has been commissioned and designed by the Studio to properly arm her against the powers of darkness.
It is now in the first stages of its creation. We will keep you posted on its progress. Until then, continue protecting your family and the nation of Norway from demonic forces. Good luck Hunter.
This is the Adamant Studio, signing off.
My freshly-acquired workshop!
It’s not much to look at right now but we just signed the lease yesterday. I’ve managed to secure a headquarters large enough to have a dedicated workshop. If all goes according to plan, the Adamant Studio will soon been in operation once again and I can start making new Seraph Blades! Can’t wait!
Stay tuned for more news and, as always, happy hunting.
At long last, I am pleased to present you with the Seraph blade Azrael. It’s been finished for some time now, but I have only had a chance to post about it now.
Azrael is the largest and longest blade I have ever crafted at the time of this posting. Its total length comes in at a whopping 30 inches. It can be wielded with one hand or two though due to it’s length and weight, I recommend using both hands.
This was the last blade to be forged in the Adamant Studio in Montreal before I moved to Finland and I’d like to share with you the making of my favourite sword to date.

So you wanna look like this? Well, bad news: there’s only one Jamie Bower in the world and chances are, you’re not him. But I can help you out with that sweet, sweet Seraph Blade.
You can commission a blade from me. Here’s my Etsy shop! Or you can email me at email@example.com to ask about custom orders. Each blade is made to order and is individually made by hand so please allow for a few weeks of crafting time.
But what if you want to make your own? Well, here’s a tutorial on how to carve one from solid acrylic. I make them out of liquid resin these days, but that is a huge expense for a single seraph blade which is probably what you want if you’re reading this.
