Another sharpened sword


Recommended Posts

Another of my friends contacted me if I could just grind one of his very old reenactment/stage swords sharp, to be able to cut PET flasks or say a chicken.  Bear in mind that this was 20 years old almost 4 pound thing with a thickness of 3,5 mm where the edge would be.  I have reground it into a sort of a lens profile and also ground down the oversized pommel.  Not the lightest thing still, but handles like a sword should and with good steel on the edge and the full convex from the fuller it should be capable into chopping into a pig carcass or similar things.  This time I took a "before"  picture. Judge for yourself.

It does look much better than it did. Hopefully, it was heat treated and won't bend the first time it strikes a shield.......

Its hardened alright, survived many things. But now this was a cheap opportunity for that guy to have a sharp sword for cutting demo and stuff.
