Ouroboros Sword

Recommended Posts

Hello forum friends! I want to share some images of a new sword, type XVIIIb called Ouroboros, and is the protagonist of a fantastic story that is in a storybook of which my brother is the author and will soon come to light. narrates the relationship between this alchemic symbol and immortality through cycles.

their characteristics are:

Weight is 1.20 kilos.
Total length 110 cm.
Length of the blade 85 cm.
Width at the cross 47.5 mm.
Thickness to the cross 6.5 millimeters.
Percussion point 58 cm from the cross.
Balance point 10 cm.
Forged in steel 5160
Hardness 58 rc.

Sorry for my bad English, I hope you like it, best regards

The sword is some fine work right there, but that scabbard! That is killing me.

Nice work Peter. Beautiful sword. Amazing scabbard. Do you have a photo of the back of the scabbard? Specifically I am trying to figure out how you wrapped the buckle straps around it. Thanks

Holy cow!  If the book is half as good as your work, it will be a hit.

When you look at the work in one like this, your mind goes to how long has he been working on this one??? Outstanding, marvaless, superb, impressive, majestic, those are just some of the words that come to mind when I see the workmanship in such a piece. And yet they all seem to be lacking in description!

So the best I can say is this absolutely top shelf work, there is so much to look at, every time you scroll back to the pics you see something else. You are a true craftsman!!

Hi Charles! I do not have any photo of the back of the sword, it is a detail to take into account for the next posts, but here I have a link where you can appreciate a step by step of the tied, I hope it is useful, thanks for the concepts, greetings

Not much to add that already hasn't been said.  The scabbard is just out of this world.

That leatherwork is absolutely top-notch. Really illustrates how the fine details elevate a blade from "really cool" to "jaw-dropping."

Inspiring, indeed. Very clean work, sir. The simple and pragmatic nature of this blade has an elegance all its own. And, as has been said, that scabbard is amazing.
