This is the start of a sword I am making. 22" Damascus steel hunting sword blade. I have a moose antler crown I'll carve into a handle, and I am casting my own crossbar and pommel. I have a picture of the mould for the crossbar here too. The tip of the blade is very chisel-like, and I want it rounded. I will grind / file that down into a more curved shape, then resharpen the edge. The tang is about 4 inches. I will be epoxying it into the hilt, then pinning it in place. To cover the pin, I will be making a pewter cross and inserting it into the hilt. Lastly the scabbard will be pine, and covered in leather. I am going to carve the leather with a pattern, or use studs. That I have not decided yet. I will be casting my own locket and chape for the scabbard too. Ambitious? Perhaps. But it will be an awesome showpiece that might just sell.
