Hey, check out the Celtic Dragon. We took the old Celtic Wolf and swapped in a dragon instead. It has hand carved solid brass fittings, wood core and leather wrapped hexagonal grip, and a 5160H marquenched steel leaf blade. Thanks for viewing! Cool

Thanks alot you guys! I really don't have a name for it yet and I don't even know Celtic stuff, if they had Dragons in thier lore, but it was made for a customer who might chime in later. This one has a fantasy look but I can telI you there is nothing but high performance under the hood. I have to do a dragon pommel "Sleepy Hollow" sword type sword. Long as it doesn't look like the Connery dragon in "Dragon Heart" I should be ok. Got some historical broadswords and Gladii going out soon, stay glued:)

That is an awesome looking sword John. One of these days I have to have you make me a big honking leaf blade. Or a big honking scimitar. Or the list is endless. Sad

Very attractive sword, do you have a few statistics about it ? I always enjoy hearing about handling.

The art of the thing is that you make fantasy designs that are functional and plausible and a very creative way to continue the tradition of sword making in the modern age and is a different approach to keeping close to period designs aesthetically but fully respects the design side of it functionally and as high art.

The weight is right at 3lbs. It is 45" total length and has a 4" balance there is tons of distal tapper and it is very sharp all the way to the beginning of riccasso. It is a high performance cutter but a very fast handler, quick recovery, but with enough weight in blade to be a heavy hitter. The leaf shape adds to the ability to deeply penetrate in draw cuts. I has a reenforced thrusting tip. Under the hood is a nice wide stiff tang. Oh yeah, the shape and dragon stuff is just the paint job:) The hand carved solid brass fittings are very tight and it has peened construction. Thanks for asking:)
