  1. Hello, I want to share with you my current project. The design is based on late 15th century bauernwehrs/ruggers. Total lenght will be around 40cm, blade lenght is circa 26,5 cm. I used NZ3 tool steel (vert tough and shock resistant). The blade is already profiled and tempered. It is differentially hardened (edge quench). Maybe the hamon will be visible. The next step is to give it a nice satin finish and make a handle. I plan to make some interesting detailes like decorated pin and multilayer forge welded cap. I already have a prototype of the pin. We'll see if I can solder it properly.
  2. With blades being made for dwarves and elves and such around here I thought it was time to make something for the other side. This is secondary blade for a Gundabad orc.... made for hacking the beards from their mortal foes! 17" OAL, 12" blade. 1095 of 3/16" thickness. Handle of bog oak slabs, copper pins and washers, mild steel bolster, 1095 nagel. All steel hot-browned. You will notice that I was working from a basic bauernwehr design adding a little more savagery to the profile, I thought. Pretty much a flat grind. Balances about an inch in front of the bolster. Very light and fast .... hide your beards! Here is the first nagel I made for it, the Eye, based on John Howe design.
