A Falcata

Now I think I see how that handle is going to go together with the tang.  I'm anxious to see the handle cast and attached to the sword.

I would forge the blade and tang very differently now, so it was a bit of a puzzle. Ahistoriffic! :lol:

Had a minor casting blowout pushing the weight and volume limits of my centrifugal caster, but all is well.

 

Final touches and assembly tomorrow.

Final photo booth pics incoming, but here’s the blade & a quick sheath. We may revisit the sheath later, but it has a date with a big war coming up.
