  1. This is my maker's mark that I use for my company Winterborn Blades.
  2. Hi everyone! This is my maker's mark I use for my company Winterborn Blades.
  3. Hi Doug. I was aiming for it to weigh a little more than a Messer which weighs 3lbs and 2-3 oz. No question it's on the heavier side of swords that size but it definitely doesn't feel like a sword that weighs 3lbs 10oz and it does have a distal taper. I definitely find it tougher to guage the final weight on a fantasy style sword from a drawing than a historical recreation. Next one I make similar to this I want to aim for around 3lbs 5oz.
  4. Me too! There is definitely an elegance to them!
  5. Hello everyone! Here is a video of my latest sword. I hope you all enjoy it! Also here is a link to a thread with pictures:
