Here is my latest finished sword,I have been trying to make more swords!

The sword is by me and the scabbard is by Tod.

Off on hols for a week and then into a couple of very intensive Teaching months....so unlikly to be much new stuff from me for a little while....although I do still have a few things nearly finished!

The blade is patternwelded in a romanoceltic pattern with lines running up the middle and a 200 layer edge that is welded at the tip.

The handle is made from boxwood and the guard and pommel are walnut with brass fittings (and a couple of copper rivets on the peening block.)

The scabbard is brass and decorated pewter over a poplar core and has been made by Tod from Tod’s Stuff.

It is a piece of art. Every time I go back to the pics I see something I had not seen before! 

C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft

Another amazing piece Owen, but you can't go on holiday!  You have been providing so much top notch sword and knife porn lately that I am addicted.  I already feel my hands starting to shake...

Beautiful work! I'm not much of a gladius guy, but the craftsmanship is obviously top shelf. It's great that you're doing more sword, too.
