the blade is random laminate from billet od 350 layers, the guards and pommel are silver inlayed wrought, grip is reindeer antler carved with dragons and brass runic vettrim bands

its light and agile weapon thanks for looking and eventual comments

Excellent!
I was thinking at first that it was the usual double edged fare, but no this is much better. Great work, exquisite detail but still not over worked. I just love how it comes together..
IMO your best one so far, which is no small feat looking at the high standard of your previous ones.

Petr,
I followed this one being created. It is a work of art, and just shows how your work is progressing. I'm not sure what you will do to top this one!

Looks fantastic to me. Great detailing. This isn't even my period of interest and it still looks awesome.

Breathtaking. The fuller position is fascinating. I love the carved handle as well, it looks great and fits it perfectly.

I have to echo Brian. I'm all about the two edged two handers but this, this is breathtaking.
