More practice until the real thing. My latest waster. I took the time to weight it with lead to get the balance right. This is the handle wrap I made. I know the pictures are crummy (from my phone since I don't have the camera right now), but I hope you get the idea.
lol, Not quite what you expected is it? I made this one on a whim a few weeks ago. I have Hans Tolfhoffers book on medieval combat on loan from the library and I figured that I might as well make a practice sword. I need another one and a friend to mess around with. I'll be making his twin sometime this or next week. Made the blade, tang, and pommel from northwest cedar. The reinforcement, crossguard, and grips are all white oak. It's finished with amber shellac and poyurenthane.
