the "chopper" is similar in look to the Irgaak of the extended tolkien universe.Althoughpure fantasy, I have alwayse kinda liked, since it might not match a real word style, but does look like something that people might have actually designed to use in combat (unlike most fantasy "swords").

... I was tempted to type " What saber ??? " ... but I have to keep reminding
myself that a saber's blade is NOT always as curved as I like to see it ... B-)

Hope to see the finished product in the future.

The top one gets damascus guard and damascus spacer and leather grips. The next gets a ansideways "S" guard grip is cord over wood with thin leather wrap abd ring pommel. The next gets Northstar guard with scent stopper pommel. The next gets bowtie guard with wheel pommel or octagon. The long two handed saber gets a habaki and guard with forward and backward S shape with piercings and side rings. The pommel is like a Jian pommel. Most of these get etchings and trinkets:) The blade on the very bottom is unspoken for so I don't really know yet thanks for asking
