I have to agree it has a very clean look that gives it a very attractive look without all of the decorations of some fancier ornamented swords I personally love it.

I love this sword!!! I am looking at those rivets and thinking to myself, how do you get them so uniform? Beautiful. If I could i would add this blade to my collection in a heart beat. The proportions are great. The blade looks wicked. I just want to swing that thing! Great job!

It is beautiful. Very clean. What kind of wood did you use on the handle? I am totally envious.

That`s a real beauty! How did you do the crossguard? Is it made from one block or welded together?

regards,
Thomas

Thanks guys for all your good words and comments and answering your questions :

The handle wood is Bloodwood.

The crossguard is of course one piece, carved from a solid piece of mild steel. The nagel is chilled and press fit on the crossguard which makes it as strong and permanent as if welded.

Thanks again,

Gabriel
