Nice! Did you forge the fuller? I have been looking at putting a fuller in one of my next blades and haven’t attempted one yet. I would love to hear your feedback, suggestions, and personal experience. Mine won’t be anywhere near a sword length yet. But I love hearing others input on what to do and what to avoid. I also love the brass and guard and the pommel. Did you carve the pommel? Did you use a reference or how did you go about that design? I would love to see a pic of the pommel in a close up if you have additional pics! Great job all around

the fuller was ground in i know it is possable to forge um but i am not set up for that ...i used a cut off type of grinding wheel in a 4.5 in grinder to cut groove for guide then use a air die grinder to make the fuller the pommel was a lost wax casting i made years ago in a lost wax class the dezign is similar to single edge swords from the 17th /18 th century ... i did not purposefully copy any certan blade just made what i wanted at the time..

That looks incredible. I have casting on my short list as well. Seeing this, I may need to move it up the list. Thanks for including that pic. I think my first fuller will be ground as well. If I had the right tools, I would attempt to forge it, but based on my current setup, I will try something similar to what you describe. You ended up with a good smoothness that I am hoping to achieve and from the pics, I would be extremely happy with that symmetry. I think your sabre is fantastic. Really great job.
