Hussar sabre. Yes, another classic :)

Recommended Posts

After a long break I'm coming back to reenacting, blades, axes and knives :) I was really busy during winter at some chandelieres and sconces to a Baroque monastery which is being restored. Some projects are waiting in a queue to be finished (like PW sword). I'm gradually catching up :)

This sabre is rather heavy with big grip - for a massive man with a big hand.

Total weight is 893g / 1,97lb / 31,5oz

Blade lenght is 855mm / 33,7"

PoB is 190mm - 7,48"

Bend is 61mm / 2,4"

Spring steel 50HF (51CrV2)

That's a beauty!  I'd love to see the ironwork you've been doing for the monastery as well.

I'm going to take some good pictures in the future. Now my wife's got some on her mobile.

The pipes were bent hot with sand inside - so all the wires are hidden.

I also made  (in the past) some hinges, generally I do variety of works about blacksmithing, but here I put only blades as this forum is a baldesmithsforum :lol:

I always love seeing your new lades - they are an inspiration.... and so are the lighting fixtures - beautiful pieces.  Putting sand in the pipes and bending them hot is a brilliant idea. Thanks for sharing.

The saber is awesome, but I am quite curious on the sand in the pipes part. 

When you say bent them hot, are we talking like a dull red heat, or a bladesteel hot where there might be melted sand left over in them after the fact. And are you closing the ends to ensure that the sand does not escape and then reopening them somehow after the bend is made?

Robert D.

I do it like that:

heat the sand to approx 400*C (to get rid of most of the water)

tighten one end of the pipe in the vice and weld it wiht MIG.

Fill it with sand (just after it gets cold), tighten the second end of a pipe and weld it.

Then the pipe is heated to approx light red/dark orange and bend on the swage.

And, yes if the pipe gets hot to high the sand may melt down :lol: If we loose concentration at some moments shit may happen... :P
