First hidden tang and guard


Recommended Posts

This is my first hidden tang and guard. This has been a learning experience, and my first lesson is that I need a better set of files. The guard kicked my butt. The pommel and guard are made of brass. The guard has a aluminum top on it since my sloppy file work left a real loose fit. The pommel is threaded onto the tang. The handle is made from elm wood and oak with copper spacers. The blade is forged from a leaf spring. The blade length is 15.5 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. The hanndle is 5.5 inches long.

Looks pretty good. Nice plunges and finish on the blade, solid fit up on the handle. The guard has its issues, but you're obviously aware of that. Pretty solid attempt overall, Randall.
