Sam Salvati Posted August 18, 2009 Share Posted August 18, 2009 (edited) Picked up the bare leafblade that Rick Barrett had on his website for the longest time (that no one snagged up!). It's 8670M, which is sort of kinda similar to L6 (i think). Rick said it is polished up to 400, still blue from HT in the salts. Sat down tonight to start planning out what I want to do with it. Busted out some tractor printer paper I got from a good friend and traced out the blade and though some different things out. Using some cool techniques I am barely scratching the surface of, in a very basic way, I laid out the guard design I thought might work cool with the blade. It will be a double ring sort of thing, with straight bars that are upset at the ends. I just put a wheel pommel on there for simplicity sake, I might change it I might not I might do some cool things to the wheel to make it not so plain, not sure yet. Blade is a diamond cross section, with a short fuller inset into a sort of hex cross section at the base of the blade. Edited August 18, 2009 by Sam Salvati Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
