Great work, it came out beautifully. Excellent detail on the handle, and the blade and hardware complement each other nicely. Can't wait for the scabbard B)

Alright! Great finish.

 

Nice, tight transition between the blade and the bolster.

 

A really nice overall effort.

 

Looking forward to future work of yours!

Lovely work, just beautiful...

 

Not too different from some of the Gotland saxes.

Hello

 

Finally I got time to continue this project. The scabbard.

I preferred a wood version than leather. I wanted to make and learn about brass fittings

 

The wood is a nice board of walnut cleanly cut in the middle. pictures speak by themselves.

The tough part was to carve the antler to fit both the blade section and the round guard. (but I have improved my dremel skills a lot recently) B)

Brazing is also quite new to me but good materials and flux made it easy.

Until this point I have around 10 hours work

Hi !

 

Mini update but quite a lot of work hours

I got some job done on the brass fittings. Silver brazing the end cap, carve the wood grooves and forge the straps.

I also spent quite some time to research some nice designs to carve on all those fittings.

 

All together no less than 10 hours. I’ve got the feeling the scabbard will take as much time as the langsax. maybe more. :blink:
