Sickle-Blade Short-Sword

Recommended Posts

After taking the summer off to restore my vehicle, I finally finished a piece.

Envisioned to be the blade of a high-desert drifter, this piece makes me think of a scorpion's tail.
I plan on keeping and, doing some cutting with this one. So, instead of my usual 1200 grit low-mirror polish, I polished it to just a 400 grit satin finish. 

Steel: 1075
Handle Material: Wenge
Overall Length: 24 & 3/4"
Blade Length: 18 & 3/4"
Handle Length: 6"
Tang Thickness: 1/4"
POB: 3 & 1/2" past front edge of handle
Weight: 1 lb, 9 oz
Heat treated by Lyndle Driggers of J&L Cutlery

I think you nailed the look of a desert drifters weapon. 

Awesome work!

Thank you! I love Khopesh, and those certainly influenced the design. As a stock removal only guy, I'm limited to how much curve I can put on a blade, so, there it is... ;)
