La Tène Sword

Recommended Posts

Hey guys this is one thats been on the bench for a while now, been slowly working on it when the feeling was right... blade started out here http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=28534&hl=

and I ran outta steam on it and my feelings about the swords greatly changed... made it to Scotts place last year and it went into a deep sleep for many months! But after many hours looking at old sword scabbards and la Tene art it had to be awakened! and it was about time I finsihed something :rolleyes:

Very cool, the tip of the scabbard is awesome too, does it serve a purpose functionally?

My jaw's hit the floor. Can I go forge a drool bucket real fast?

 

Excellent work, I'm happy to see this build finished and finished so well.

I would be honored to second this nomination! Michael's stuff has been hugely inspiring since I started, and I'm surprised he doesn't have one already!

Third! I just went back through some of his older posts and found I was threatening to light his beard all the way back in September 2013. I agree the time is finally here, so:

 

Michael, light up thy beard, and welcome to the brotherhood!

Awesome! I'm glad you guys like the blade too...

 

I actually found a post from june 2012 that my wiskers where smoldering, guess my beard didn't wanna go haha ;)

 

Forget the fancy photo shoping... I might go with bad pixel job like "minecraft" B)
