Seven King Sword

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! how are you! I hope that full of expectations for this new year that is coming, the best of wishes and that is better than the year that happened !. I wanted to show you what would almost be a wip, of a sword inspired by a ceremonial sword that has on its scabbard seven kings who used it over time. The project started with a sword type X gaddhjalt style built in steel 5160 and with a traditional scabbard on which we planned the placement of the seven kings engraved and embossed in copper plate. then we put two bronze splints and sunchos and all pointed nails with bronze nails. It is the first of its kind that we did so I hope that the next one comes out better, greetings and good new year for all.

I thought the brass stood out a bit to much until that patina shot, then it was freaking amazing.

Sat seven thrones.

Built upon,

Their subjects bones.


 Seven kings,

With sword ahand.

Ruled upon,

This broken land."

Seriously, you hope the next one comes out better. Oh my God man, I don't think you left anything to shoot for with this one, short of transporting back into time to see it used!!

The way you have the photos put together show the work at various stages and some of the "how" but, I can't imagine the hours of work that went into this one. The scabbard is an absolute work of art! The only thing left is a dragon embedded in the sword itself!! OK now I was only joking about the dragon but,........................ This kind of work shows anyone out there what is possible, however how many of us will actually achieve this level, remains to be seen.  Image result for bowing to the master emoji

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

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Well, now. I cannot add much to what has already been said. Thanks for bringing this to the forum. What a spectacular piece of craftsmanship.
