This past Saturday the boys and I were all working on getting concrete poured for our power hammer bases and working on the roof for the new hot work forge area. I had a break where my hands were not needed and I got inspired to create a nice long sword.

I decided to offer this as a special to this forum for a few days as a way to raise a few extra $ for our hammer-in event. It would be a big help to us and to the event. (www.FireandBrimstone.com)

The retail value of this sword is $725.00. The sale price is $500. What you see is what you get. I am not supplying leather for this. Christian Fletcher has the sister blade to this one in his hands now and has offered to do the leather work at his rates if the buyer chooses to do so. This price will only be good for 3 days. After that it will be shipped to a dealer.

This blade is based off of our production 32" bastard sword. I then reshouldered it up about a half inch so that the fuller would run under the guard leaving the blade length at 31.5". I ground quite a bit of distal taper into this bladed and can be seen quite easy by looking at the tapered fuller. The blade is very sharp and quite swift. The balance point is 2" from the hilt leaving a light sword that is easy to wield with one hand but has enough handle for hand and a half uses.

The handle is Tiger striped maple from the Paul Reed Smith factory and is left overs from their guitar blanks.

The blade and the pieces were all highly polished and then hand scrubbed back to a satin.

I am not posting this deal anywhere else. It is for myArmoury.com members only. I hope this deal benefits a member of this forum and our event!









Overall Length: 41.5"
Blade Length: 31.5"
Blade Width at Guard: 2."

Guard Length: 9.75"
Pommel hieght: 2"
Point of Balance: 2"
Hilt & Pommel Material: Steel
Grip Construction: Tiger Stripe Maple solid core / Bored-through Method
Scabbard/Sheath: Not Included / see Christian Flecther (http://www.christianfletcher.com/Christian_Fl...bards.html
Oakeshott Type: XVIa
Guard Type: exaggerated Type 2
Pommel Type: Hammer faceted Type J
Construction: Threaded Peenblock

I will upload more pictures shortly and will add them here http://baltimoreknife.com/hammerinspecial1.htm

Look forward to seeing many more upgraded customs like this from us. A recent demand on nicer blades has allowed us to keep the flow on higher end pieces in the shop. Look for an offical "upgraded" sword line from BKS in the weeks to come.

Thank you for looking. Comments are always welcome! Questions are also welcome. Feel free to post Q's in the thread or in a PM.

That sword looks awesome Matt. It's outside of my typical period of interest or I would snap that up.

Thanks, fellas. I have a piece of this wood left to do a two hander then a few pieces that I can work with on smaller pieces. I sure hope I can get some more. So many different ways you can finish that wood. I just went to ther PRS guitar site and looked at all the ways they finish it. Looks real neat when dyed.
