Avarian saber - pattern welded blade


Recommended Posts

Another avarian saber blade. Almost the same as the one here:

https://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?/topic/37833-pattern-welded-avarian-saber-price-drop/

 

This one is slightly longer and wider, the pw twist is 60 layers. The weight remained the same: 565g (which was a surprise to me - it wasn't planned).

Blade lenght: 746mm

Width: 32mm

Thickness: 6,5mm

Bend: 24,5mm

 

Steel: 50HF (51CrV4) spring steel

Pw twist:  old saw x mild steel.

Apparently yes. They were pattern welded - it was very common technicque in those times.

I got some picture from customer - don't know what book it comes from (I'll ask). It shows the pw structure.
