I actually finished this creation around MARCH - it took forever to get outside and take some decent photos.

Giladuial ("star of evening") was constructed with a Hanwei Tinker Bastard Sword Blade with Fuller - OH2412 (http://www.kultofathena.com/product.asp?item=...ith+Fuller) with shortened & reformed tang.

The guard and pommel are from Ernie of Yeshua's sword - and are, as always, perfection incarnate Happy.

Stats:

OAL: 42 3/4"
Blade: 33"
Grip & Pommel: 9"
POB: 3 3/4"
Weight: 2.89 Lb

I hunted and hunted for the RIGHT blue 2.5 oz leather for this sword - and finally found it through the Leather Guy on EBAY. Grip, scabbard core, risers, and wrapping and overall construction are mine.

Photos (and even outside, it's hard to catch the EXACT blue of the leather):

Hello
Great looking sword. I wish I had scabbard makeing skills like that. I should be getting, Giltithin (Little Stars) from Ernie in October. Thanks again for the translation.

Very nice job. That color combination is exceptional.
