Ok I'm not sure if this belongs here, if not I'll move it to the appropriate section. I started on I Christmas present idea and wanted to bounce the design off everyone. I'm looking for any input so feel free to have at it. It's based on Gerhard Wielands designs. I really like the flow he creates and wanted to try something like it. I'm thinking of W1 for blade. Copper, guard???,copper. Some dark wood (ebony maybe?) then copper again for the shield shaped pommel. Like I said have a look and fire away.
