Nice Eric …..I was going to ask what the handle material was because it looked like it was shinny ….. till I zoomed in and realized the “reflections” I thought I was seeing were the grips….

Nice file work!!!!

The pommel must have been interesting to make.  Also, is the knuckle guard braised to the cross guard?  It seems like the finger loop would have to have been.

It was the first time doing one of these pommels. Deceptively complicated shape. 

 

No brazing on this guard, though that would have been an easier row to hoe. It was considered.

Really excellent!

 

I wonder how you affixed the grip bars? I'm guessing grooves in the wooden core, and the ray skin is compressed into them by the bars, and secured by the end caps?

I hope that's a good wow :D

Yes. Yes indeed it was.

If I have nothing good to say, I say nothing at all.
Unless someone asks me for a critique, it which case I am brutally honest.
