Hello people.

I wish to ask if someone can borrow me an image of a wooden hand and a half sword waster, with the following spects?

Overall lenght:
Cross guard width :
Grip length (Overall):
Pommel lenght:
Blade lenght.
Weight:

Type of wood:

There are several swords in the reviews, but since i wish to ask a carpenter to make a couple of wasters for me and a friend, i prefer to take the measurements from a wooden swords instead of a steel one to calculate weight and all, and have a general idea about it.

Thank you.

Or you can buy one of these from New Stierling Arms. I know the guy who makes these and have two myself. They're great wasters and he sells overseas too.

Also good wasters these days have counter-balance weights in their pommels and use some pretty advanced wood working techniques to make them perform a lot like swords. For the price plus shipping you'll probably come out ahead over the time and effort to make them yourself...unless you really want to go that way.

Best regards,

Bryce

Thank you, but i prefer to deal with my carpenter, since the relationship between peso and dollar is around $3=U$S1,
Its like if you have to pay for everything 3 times its price.
Thank you anyway.
