  5. Thanks Kevin, Due to Sandy I was not able to take real good photos of the blade , we lost power for two weeks and had 12 inches of sea water in my shop , the blood groove was ground in free hand as were the bevels then all hand polished out all the dimintions were taken from the sword in the Smithsonian by Scott , the blade has two grooves one about 1/8 and the other wide one , I have two more saber orders simular so i will try and get better out door light with them , on the grip I used stag horn and ground all the out side off cut the groves in free hand and die with leather die and burnishe

  9. Hello David , These were the only photos i took of the guard from the start, the rest was basic drawing out I did how ever have to make several special fullering tools to draw out the loops on the sides and a ball die to make the ends the rest was file work , with good hammer control , now if the customer would just pay me the balance and pick up the sword , if you ever need help just call me .
