 I haven't had much time online in the past weeks, but here is a short update on the latest sword project. It is a sidesword typical for Achille Marozzo and his contemporaries (1536).  Intended for civilian fencing, it is light (around 900g) and very agile. The pommel is hollow to achieve this low weight. It was also the first time that I heat treated the hilt, (clamped between two angle irons to prevent warping). Here are some pictures, excuse the rough look - it has already seen some sparring action.

Elegant in form. I love the little detailing at the base of the blade. Those wire wrapped hilts make my fingers hurt just looking at them!

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
