  1. Well. I used ready upholstery nails, and the wooden plates are riveted with thin pins (2mm) and then covered by decorative nails. Plus I used inside epoxy resin - not historicall, but it is inside the grip, so invisible. And wood is merbau.
  2. Black Curse - this is how the Turkish name Karabela was interpreted. It sounds both menacing and picturesque, and it really is. This weapon, when equipped with a handle of the Polish type - eagle's head widening towards the beak - as a master Wojciech Zabłocki maintained, in the hands of a skilled fencer, was evoking respect and was able to inflict irreparable losses on the opponent's body. I just finished such a karabela. The construction of the hilt of this type of saber is interesting - a strap of brass sheet encirceling the wooden plates is soldered to the sheet adjacent to the tan
  3. Hi. Recently I've finished a really exciting work. I've put it also on my blog: https://lipinskimetalart.blogspot.com/2021/04/brunewyrm-stream-serpent-wijacy-sie.html Brunewyrm – the owner named it like that and this means in old English “Serpent Stream”. The seax successfully landed in the owner's hands in Tennessee :) I forged the blade out of several elements: a serpent of 21 layers of soft and hard steel (S235 x 80CrV2) twisted in a classic “rope”. It winds between old fibrous wrought iron, and on the spine there is also a layered strip, but without twis
  4. I'd like to offer a small knife. Blade and handle almost same lenght: 100mm / 4" Leathetr sheath with brass fittings. Handle: black bog oak + reddish Hungarian Plum wood. Blade forged of wrought iron (spine) and tool steel 80CrV2 (edge). I'm asking 160$ + shipping 25$ = 185$ (Can be WU or international transfer from bank account) Contact via pm here or email: krylip (at) gmail.com
  5. I admire Your Work Really top notch reconstructions
  6. Pop Iuliu-Cristinel Thank You for sharing Your finds I would be really glad to see what other objects You've got described in dimentions. Btw, I often think to visit Romania, never been so far, but my Wife has, also my brother and a friend. I know it is worth to see.
  7. Alex. Just cover the object with very thin film of linseed oil (with small brush then with a tissue or cloth) - the layer needs to be really thin. Then heat (coke forge or gas or even electric oven) to approx 200-300*C (400 - 570F). The oil will get burned on the surface. Then put the detail to cool down and repeat this operation at least twice. That's it
  8. Couple of months ago I finished the sword, the photographs were safely stored on the computer and now the time to finish the thread came The sword has plenty of flaws and is far from perfect, but it is suitable for fighting (it is blunt for reenacting). The blade is durable and fully functional. I have learned a lot during forging it - first thing: use more material to do more stock removal to leave less flaws. As always curious cat does a quality check. I hope this time it passed And here You can see all the rest of pictures showing the finished sword. My cousin decided
  9. I asked my Wife who has more knowledge in many cases, she smiled and said this reminds a symbol of Freemasonry
  10. The "symbol" is just to make the construction stronger like hanged bridges. If it's got any meaning it came out unintentionally, actually accidentally.
