  3. Thank you very much for so much valuable information !!!!!
  4. Hi Brian, how are you? From my humble experience and listening to the most experienced, I think that 6 mm is fine for the thickness of the blade in the fort, although I like it better with 5 mm, and then once You have the shape of the blade ready, you have to handle the distal taper taking into account more the distribution of masses, leaving the strong third almost untouched and quickly lowering towards the tip. Another important issue is the remaining thickness of material between the two fullers, which in your graph looks quite thick, you should lower it until it is at least 1 mm or less. T
  5. Beautiful project Rob, congratulations.! "!! What a good quality of forge, immaculate bevels. I think you can calmly do the heat treatment in your forge by taking the blade back and forth in the Japanese way Merry Christmas
  6. Hello fellow forum members! How are you, I want to share this Viking sword as a Christmas gift, or rather yule !! We present the Warg, inspired by a sword from the late Viking age, discovered during the summer of 2011 in the town Norwegian from Langeid. Like the original sword, the Warg has a Petersen Æ type guard in the style of those found in Ål and Buskerud, Norway or Suontaka in Finland. One of the most interesting features is the extremely short and historically correct grip. The hilt only supports three fingers, so the little finger partially rides on the pommel and the forefinger and th

  10. . Hello how are you! I haven't posted any work for a long time, but we finished several commissions during the time of the pandemic. little by little I will upload material to share! Medusa is a typical one-handed sword from the early Renaissance, with a type XV blade of the Oakeshott classification, very popular in the middle and late fourteenth century, its use reaching the fifteenth century.

  11. Ohh !!!Sorry! now I understand!! Of course! Is right!!! Thank you very much for the clarification!!!
  12. 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

  16. 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!
  17. 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
