Poe's Raven by TwistedSynapses Poe's Raven by TwistedSynapses
Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

-Giant of 19th century American prose: Mr. Edgar Allen Poe.

Hi, I'd like to use your cool picture above for a knifemaker's website (www.wieland-der-schmied.de). He did a hommage to the poem and forged his version of The Raven, made of steel, bronze, and ebony. If interested, I will post the link after publishing here.

Hey,
I don't have a problem with that. He makes some beautiful knives! My grandfather dabbled in that trade. I've always loved hand-crafted blades.
