Man, I wish my school was that cool - all we have is an arc welder and a oxy-acetaline torch. That is absolutely beautiful work, I have been following from the beginning and I'm very impressed with how it turned out.

That ended up perfect! Very well done!

Absolutely gorgeous work man! Work to truly be proud of indeed. :)

You can see the elements where you took respectful inspiration from some hirstorical and modern soruces.
But then filtered all of it through your own original style and easthetic, and brought forth a stunning piece that is all your own.

Now go make more!!! ;)

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness,

nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend"

Thanks for the kind words everyone!


This sword is certainly not perfect, but for being my first I am very pleased with how it turned out. I hope to make many more of these in the future, unfortunately I've had to clear out my bench at school and my 3rd story, 70-year-old apartment is not exactly ideal for bladesmithing, so it will be a little while before I can get a proper shop setup. Nevertheless, I don't plan to stop any time soon!


I wouldn't have been able to get this done without the information shared on this forum, and the kind advice of various members, so thanks again!
