I'm impressed with your forging skills! The swords look amazing! I just can't imagine how to shape iron by forging to get such shapes of handles.

Jestem pod wrażeniem Twoich umiejętności! Miecze wyglądają niesamowicie! Nawet nie potrafię sobie wyobrazić jak można za pomocą kucia osiągnąć takie kształty rękojeści.

Hello Ibor. I am interested to know more about the use of the second sword(at the pictures) you recreated. Does it have specific historical name, and where could I learn more about the historical use of this design. Maybe you know some of this things or can redirect me to the right place. Thanks!
