Recommended Posts

From 3" x .375" 6150 flat. Ground to shape. Guard hot twisted around blade & normalized the whole thing. Clayed back, austenized @1550, quenched in 400F soybean oil. Finished on a Scotchbrite medium belt & Paracord wrapped. Started like this:

Scabbard is aluminum from an old cheapie, modded with fiberglass wrap - no frills here

That's a pretty clean blade. The hilt is pretty interesting as it almost looks like a separate piece, until you notice the bends. Very nicely done.

Thanks Much -

 

 

You can see that there's not much to it -

 

Tho i'd austenize a bit hotter & maybe quench a little cooler with the 6150 i've got left - this one was a kinda soft

 

The warm quench does give a minute or two for straightening -

Damn, that was a big (and nice) change from the rough blank to the final sword. I usually don't like fantasy swords that aren't pretty reality-based (I think all of our swords are fantasy to a certain extent, even historical copies).

 

Pretty high in cool factor.
