  1. Ohh !!!Sorry! now I understand!! Of course! Is right!!! Thank you very much for the clarification!!!
  2. Thank you very much for the answers, I am very pleased that you liked it, excuse my poor English. Screws may seem anachronistic, but this rapier sword is an interpretation of the late first or second quarter of the 17th century, they are more elaborate mugs and generally carry screws. They are not well appreciated in the photos, but they are handmade and chiseled, as they were used back then. I am attaching a couple of original photos from which we have been inspired. thank you very much again for your words, kind regards

  5. Hi Joshua! , made by an Indian craftsman named Enrique Gufran, https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100010625770191 this is your facebook profile
  6. 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!
  7. 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

The pommel is fishtail type and has silver wire wound and chiseled in leather.
