runic never hurts, i'm going to be putting the purpose of the blade on an inscription on the inside of the handle on mine. something like "to overcome obsticles" for a camp knife haha

i only need 3 things to be happy: my girlfriend, my forge, and fruit juice.

ok, finished this one. opted not to carve anything into it, as just fileworking the guard and pommel took a really long time. and i was having trouble with the handle.

 

blade is 15" overall 20"

guard and pommel are wrought iron, fileworked and deeply etched

blade is made from a large file, almost all of the teeth ground off

handle is crotchwood walnut with buffalo horn spacers

the tang is peined over the pommel, but i put in 2 pins just to be safe.

 

this knife/sword cuts really well, and fits my hand well.

 

sorry about the phone picture, ill post some better ones once i find my camera :ph34r:

I like it I like it.

My life is like shaving with a razor sharp machete. It's a bit awkward and I feel a sting every now and then, but in the end I'm happy with the results.
