Zorro's sword

Recommended Posts

This is my take on the Zorro sword from the last movie, not the kind of sword project I normally take on but it was a fun and challenging build. 

Specs are 32" blade 1.5 at base 39" overall right around 2lb balance is 3.5 from the guard blade is L6 fittings are polished 1018 handle is wood core cord and leather the studs are stainless steel as are the ferrals . The scabbard is poplar with felt lining leather and stainless steel fittings. 

thanks MP

I love this sword, since it looks just like it is supposed to (even though I am not sure about historical references with this shape, it's Zorro and who doesn't love Zorro?).

The L6 in that section - were you able to air harden it? That would simplify that part of things (but L6 is such a pain in other ways I never use it). But, I don't have your tools or skills, either.
