The blade is polished and all components are in place. Ready for peening!

This one is coming together nicely! Are you planning on making a waisted grip for it?

It will get a waisted grip, yes. Only appropriate grip shape for such a sword in my eyes Wink

No plans for a wire wrap though.

Blade length is 95cm, overall slightly over 120cm if I recall correctly.

Weight will be around 1650g, the complex guards adds a good bit but being close to the hand, it's not a big problem.

And now, back to that grip! I'm living vicariously through you right now. Tell me it will be a rich, deep Oxblood red. Excuse me--had to wipe the saliva from my bottom lip just thinking about it. Big Grin ....Come on...really....What color have you decided on? Inquiring minds want to know! Big Grin .............McM
