Absolutely beautiful! Thank you for sharing! I am also fascinated with other styles of blades other than the norm. I do intend to research quite a few and even maybe forge some out. Beautiful blade and scabbard.

Thanks for putting together the page and sharing this project Antonio :)

 

It was very challenging and satisfying to make and a great exercise in diversification for me.

 

Thanks for the positive comments guys :)

This sword is gorgeous. Sincerely, together with some other swords of Vince Evans and Ric Furrer, this is one of the most impressive works I've ever seen. My hat off to the maker and the designer.

I remember Matthew's search from your old forum years ago, Antonio. While I always look forward to seeing anything you and Paolo come up with, I think this is the pinnacle of all I've seen! :ph34r:

 

Paolo, you've entered the ranks of the masters. Congratulations. B)

Thanks again guys :)

 

Guiseppe, I'd actually like to thank Vince and Ric as they generously shared with me some valuable advice on traditional processes when I found myself stumped a couple of times.

 

Allan, I've made some progress thanks to the generous sharing from you all. ;)

Honestly, big blades/swords don't fit my taste or interest. Regardless, the craftsmanship on that piece is amazing. The radius staying consistant in order that the saber could be drawn from a scabard with a fit that tight was critical and shows skill and attention to detail. The work on the grip and pommel is also very impressive. VERY good job! I hope that my skills improve to that level one day.

Hello Adlai, Alan, JH, Howard and everyone else,

 

I love this blade's geometry. It is so intricate yet nothing is superfluous. And considering that it was forged... wow :rolleyes:

I'm very happy that Matthew got what he looked for and Paolo received once more the recognition he deserves. Ranks as a Master, indeed.

 

Cheers to you all :lol:

Hello, Gentlemen. Allow me to admit that I do not post here often, in fact this

might be my very first post, but I DO venture into these forums to investigate

new and interesting items.

 

I am the proud and happy owner of this saber, which I had been trying to

either find as an available reproduction, or have made by an interested

maker.

 

I must acknowledge and applaud, with great appreciation, the efforts of Paolo

in making a 4-yeard dream come true, and Antonio for his encouragement,

support, and webpage work.

 

I can't say enough, and perhaps have already elsewhere, about the result of

Paolo's work, as well as his timely and detailed updates during the entire process

that began for me back in August '08. I hope the gentlefolk here won't mind me

posting a photo I recently took. Once again, I present The Black Saber.
