I have been working on this piece for a little while now. I've reached the initial fitting stage for the main components and am presently working the campanulate guard and the peening plate. Following that is the scabbard in which i'm going to do my first metal skinned scabbard as per typical La Tene weapons.

Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?

Looks awesome! I really liked the last one you did, but I like the curves in this pommel better.

VERY cool! I'm doing one myself this week. I didn't forge the blade, but, I did the wood hilt and grip.



The grip is temporary. I made it for another project, but, it gave me the look I was going for with the contrasting wood colors.
