Beautiful work, Kris. May I ask how you achieved that cross-shaped profile on the guard? Are the pieces that project down along the handle and up along the blade forge-welded onto the rest of the guard, or is there some other kind of smithing magic at work there?

Thanks gentelmen :)

Adam - actually the traditional method is forge welding using charcoal, but I used a MIG welder. The saber is gonna be used for sport fencing, so it doesn't have to be fully traditional in production process. Rather the price does matter ;-P And durability of course.
