Single Hand Sword commission


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

Its been a long while since Ive posted blades here due to work and all that. I was wondering if anyone here would be willing to discuss a possible sword commission for a single hand sword.

I have, right now a top price of 900$ I could pay along with providing the materials, brass and wood and steel.

 

Id do it myself but I dont have enough practice in swords to feel confident in it and Id like to have it done by one of the fine craftsmen here if possible. I realize 900$ is quite low for most of the makers here and I apologize if the price offends, Its only what I have disposable right now in cash so if its not possible at all for that price can you please provide a price that you would charge.

 

Thanks for the help.

I'm not necessarily a "fine craftsman" but...have you seen my sword? http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=24283&hl=

I dont know exactly what you're looking for, but its single handed and I was planning on selling it for around $900. Working on a sheath for it too :rolleyes: Those pictures arent the best either, so if you are interested, I can take some better ones.

A picture of the design please, I too would be interested.

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

Thanks for all the replies, as for a design I was looking at something like this http://kultofathena.com/images/ANS4_l.jpg or a plainer versions of this sword by Dave D http://cedarloreforge.com/2012/03/03/clydwch-aelwyd/

 

Id love to make it myself but as I mentioned before its a matter of no time and not fully comfortable with that length of blade yet. Im kind of stuck with the limit of whatever length I can fit in my kitchen oven for tempering....

why not commission just the blade and make the hilt yourself? I have done this a couple times before on several projects, in fact its a bit of a shtick for me. Its a good way to get your feet wet on a tough project or concept, and its really great getting to know talented smiths in a collaborative context.

Anything worth doing will be done at your own expense.
