  1. Hello! I've been making my third knife (first sword length blade) for about 35 hours now and I've taken vague inspiration from Orcrist from the movie Hobbit http://images.wikia.com/lotr/images/archive/2/2f/20130101143745!Orcrist.jpg I'm in the process of filing grooves to the handle so I can inlay twisted steel wire into the grooves. The blade is 46 cm / 18 inches long and the point of balance turned out to be a bit too far away from the guard, approximately 14 cm / 5 inches. The pommel will be very slim so it will have very little effect on the point of balance. The pommel will be added last so I can insert the wire without it being in the way. The finish of the blade and guard could be better, but since I'm on a bladesmithing course 2 times a week with very little possibility to work on the sword at home I sometimes work in a slight hurry... Also removing all the scratches from the blade would've thinned it too much. I feel like my photographs could be much better, but since Finland is quite dark in the winter and I only have my phone I can't provide much sharper photos. Edit: I forgot to mention, The blade is 1060 steel, the handle is walnut which was surprisingly hard compared to birch and the guard and pommel will be brass
