I'm not familiar with the original, but that looks good and clean!

Its inspired by fantasy books by Sapkowski 'The Witcher'. :)

Sorry, I meant I knew of the books and TV series, I have just never seen them to get an idea of what the sword should look like. B)

It's still nice clean work!

That's a very nice clean looking job.  I wish that we had a source of EN45 equivalent here in the states but the only source of 9260 we had stopped carrying in a few years back.

Jacek, beautiful sword! Nice clean lines.

One question. Is there a reason you made the twists in the guard the same way and not counter to each other? Not a critique, just curious.

Doug, check out 8670 for swords and big blades. Just saw a video on AKS website in their 8670 entry of a chef knife they beat through a metal pipe.

Thanks, Bill, I'll look into that.  Another think that I considered is some of the 1/4" 15N20 stock that Aldo carries after I use  up my last bar of 9260 when I get my forge set back up.

Thank you. No there was no reason... :)
