Wow^2!  :lol:  Excellent job, particularly on the hilt.  Stainless was a good choice there.

That is fantastic!  I love sabers so much, so thank you for posting that.  I love the double fullered blade.

Very nice!! Mind sharing your method for fullering the blade? You got them very even and consistent, I'd love to learn how you did them :D

First i ground one fuller. Secound fuller must be convergent to first (you have to lose thickness on the edge between fullers)

Now it's time to bend our fullers and grind thickness.

Now we see that our fullers don't have dimensions what we wanted. We lose to much width of the fullers, so it's time to make them wider.

Using stuff like this you make them wider. Later i used (secound picture) turning insert.

So it's done ! Now grinding, grinding, ........

I've made bar with velcro and it's perfect :D

That is very nice work.  Thank you for sharing the details.

I have a question about the type of sword if you don't mind.   What is the purpose of the shape of the spine in the curved  area?

Curved double fullers - CRAZY! :P

Doing them before the bend is clever. The finish is impeccable, love it!
