Hi all! I hope you are well, here I bring you the second part of a work that began with Gib Frid, a sword that we showed earlier and that served as a school sword to perform Dark Sister.

Dark Sister is a famous Valyrian steel longsword, one of two ancestral swords of House Targaryen. Not having Valyrian steel, we forged the blade in 400 layer of 5160 and 15n20 in an Oakeshott type XVIIIc designed geometrically as its sister Gib Frid in proportion of 4/1 blade / hilt. Configured with the usual taper distal for this swords. The grip is made of leather lined with leather, finished in silver wires and topped by a fishtail pommel with floral ornament chiseled with silver inlays. The scabbard is made of wood covered in leather embellishing with chiselled Italian Renaissance garnish, made according to techniques of the time.
The total weight is 1,400 grams.
Total length: 123.5 cm
Blade Length: 93 cm
Balance point: 14 cm from the cross
Percussion point: 66 cm from the cross
Blade width on the defense: 5 cm
Note: The fishtail pommel has a slight clockwise rotation of a few degrees product of the deviation when riveting the spike on the pommel. The photos are taken by a photographer friend. I hope you like it as much as we like it. thanks for watching

Absolutely gorgeous work Peter.

One question on the grip; when you say “leather lined with leather”, is it stacked leather underneath or some other way? Thanks.

Oh Charles !, sorry for my bad English !!! I meant that it is made of wood, first lined in cotton thread, then lined in leather, and finally wrapped in silver wire. I made a mistake with the translator!

Amazing! Love it all. Tons of fine details that dont overwhelm or clash with the overall appearance. The sword being a symbol as much as a weapon I think you do an excellent job of conveying extreamely fine craftsmanship in a subtle way so as not to overpower what it is.
