  1. There must be something said about some television programs being good for bladesmiths. I recently got a commission for a sword. I know some of you are familiar with Game of Thrones. I had a lady wanting a sword as a Christmas present for her husband (he's a big fan of GOT). Turns out his favorite character is Jon Snow. Immediately, I had to some research as I'm not into GOT (couldn't get into it). Anyways, she wants this sword to be an actual sword, not just a wall hanger but she also said it doesn't have to be an exact replica. I decided to try and stay as close to Longclaw as possible with a few minor changes. So, this build started out with a length of leaf spring stock. The spring was straightened and then forged to shape. After that, the fun of grinding started. I kept the blade kind of robust for the heat treating. After the successful heat treating, the fullers were ground in then the rest of the cleanup. I then started on the hilt which is mild steel. The handle will be leather wrapped wood, and the wolf's head pommel will be cast from pewter. In the pictures below shows the progress so far. The shiny picture is what is done as of today.
