  1. Hi Joshua! , made by an Indian craftsman named Enrique Gufran, https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100010625770191 this is your facebook profile
  2. Oh Charles !, sorry for my bad English !!! I meant that it is made of wood, first lined in cotton thread, then lined in leather, and finally wrapped in silver wire. I made a mistake with the translator!
  3. Hi all! I hope you are well, here I bring you the second part of a work that began with Gib Frid, a sword that we showed earlier and that served as a school sword to perform Dark Sister. Dark Sister is a famous Valyrian steel longsword, one of two ancestral swords of House Targaryen. Not having Valyrian steel, we forged the blade in 400 layer of 5160 and 15n20 in an Oakeshott type XVIIIc designed geometrically as its sister Gib Frid in proportion of 4/1 blade / hilt. Configured with the usual taper distal for this swords. The grip is made of leather lined with leather, finished in silver wires and topped by a fishtail pommel with floral ornament chiseled with silver inlays. The scabbard is made of wood covered in leather embellishing with chiselled Italian Renaissance garnish, made according to techniques of the time. The total weight is 1,400 grams. Total length: 123.5 cm Blade Length: 93 cm Balance point: 14 cm from the cross Percussion point: 66 cm from the cross Blade width on the defense: 5 cm Note: The fishtail pommel has a slight clockwise rotation of a few degrees product of the deviation when riveting the spike on the pommel. The photos are taken by a photographer friend. I hope you like it as much as we like it. thanks for watching

  6. Hello everyone!! It's been a while since I showed anything, I'm going to upload some images of the swords we made last year. Here I bring you some pictures of an XVIIIc sword designed in hilt / blade 4: 1 ratio, it is built in 5160 steel, the total length is 124 cm and the blade is 96 cm and the weight of 1450 grams. the percussion point is at 55 cm from the guard and the balance point at 13 cm. The pommel is fishtail type and has silver wire wound and chiseled in leather. The scabbard is made of wood covered in chiseled leather and bronze sconces also chiseled. the photos were taken by a friend for a special production, I hope you like it, best regards

  10. Hello everyone!!! This post is a little long, because it tells the story of a love at first sight that began a few years ago, when I first saw an XVIIIc of Alexandria's arsenal. I was seeing her and wanting to have her. It takes some years to acquire the necessary skills to try to build it. Here is the result. I first obtained a facsimile of the Park Lane Arms catalog as a guide. Since the described sheet of only 4 mm was as fine as it was strong, we started with a steel cut silhouette 1070, tempered and straightened, which remained at 55 RC. Then, I started making the concave bevels in the belt sander with a curved back with a wide radius, to achieve a just center to edge emptying. He was controlling the distal taper without touching the forte and reaching 2.5 mm at the tip I finished the central bevels by hand. the thickness of the edge is 0.7 mm in the strong and low to 0, 3 in the percussion point. I was ready for defense and Pommel. A little ornament with gold inlays and a Venetian silver coin from the year 1400, but minted today! then we start with the wooden hilt covered with thread and upper leather. Once ready, it was sharpened and polished. I started with the scabbard in a livable way with two wooden caps emptied with a trail of wool fillet inside and vegetable tanned leather 2 mm thick. we choose a suitable renaissance motif to chisel on the surface of the leather, once ready, we dye and wax the surface irregularly then we prepare the chappel with a simple engraving. And here is the result. As always, I say that the next one will be better. The measures are as follows: blade lengt 88 cm, blade width 75 mm , weight 1400 grs , pp 55 cm, pb 12.5 cm. It feels light and agile in the hand.
  11. As always, an extraordinary job !!!!, thanks for sharing Florian
