  1. Hello everyone!!! This post is a little long, because it tells the story of a love at first sight that began a few years ago, when I first saw an XVIIIc of Alexandria's arsenal. I was seeing her and wanting to have her. It takes some years to acquire the necessary skills to try to build it. Here is the result. I first obtained a facsimile of the Park Lane Arms catalog as a guide. Since the described sheet of only 4 mm was as fine as it was strong, we started with a steel cut silhouette 1070, tempered and straightened, which remained at 55 RC. Then, I started making the concave bevels in the belt sander with a curved back with a wide radius, to achieve a just center to edge emptying. He was controlling the distal taper without touching the forte and reaching 2.5 mm at the tip I finished the central bevels by hand. the thickness of the edge is 0.7 mm in the strong and low to 0, 3 in the percussion point. I was ready for defense and Pommel. A little ornament with gold inlays and a Venetian silver coin from the year 1400, but minted today! then we start with the wooden hilt covered with thread and upper leather. Once ready, it was sharpened and polished. I started with the scabbard in a livable way with two wooden caps emptied with a trail of wool fillet inside and vegetable tanned leather 2 mm thick. we choose a suitable renaissance motif to chisel on the surface of the leather, once ready, we dye and wax the surface irregularly then we prepare the chappel with a simple engraving. And here is the result. As always, I say that the next one will be better. The measures are as follows: blade lengt 88 cm, blade width 75 mm , weight 1400 grs , pp 55 cm, pb 12.5 cm. It feels light and agile in the hand.
