This is a smallsword that I just made for our dealer at the Ohio Ren Fest yesterday. I think it is also a good example of an upgraded stock item from us. This is based off of our short rapier blade.









Blade length : 33.5"
Pommel : spiral fluted acorn
Grip: spiral fluted tigerstripe maple from B.C. Rich(http://www.bcrich.com/) with antiqued finish
Plate : Our standard smallsword plate with hand chisel work
Hilt : Our standard smallsword trainer hilt with hand chisel work

For more pictures of this smallsword please visit out site : http://imakeswords.com/spiralsmallsword.htm

Comments always welcome!

I'll be at the Ohio Ren Fest on Sunday, so if its still there I'd love to take a look at it! From the pictures it looks amazing.
For love and honor.

Cool Jimmy. Look for it at the Legacy Forge booth. Thanks for the kind words. I think you will agree that it looks much better in person.

Nice work Matt, as always.

For any other man's,
Nor that I will be ashamed
Of my work torn hands-

For I have chosen the path I tread
Knowing it would be steep,
And I will take the joys thereof
And the consequences reap.

Thanks Ben. It's been a fun year. It's not to hard for it be better then last, but its been good.

Bryan, I Didnt have time to grab a wieght on this. It was quite light and swift in the hand. I added a little distal to the already light rapier blade. I will see if my dealer can grab a wieght on it before the weekend.

I had the good fortune to handle this sword earlier today, and I have to say, she looks (and feels!) even better in person. I particularly loved the twisted wood hilt, simple but it looks great.

Great work!

For love and honor.

Thanks Jimmy,

I felt the same way too. Looked and felt much better then the pics showed. Mr. Dubro will be at our shop this evening for a week of forging, so it will be nice to hear from him how the crowd reacted on this and other new items.
