This is an intriguing variation of the (in my opinion) under-represented, "tea cozy" pommel and short cross combination. The blade has nice, crisp lines, and I like the color combination for the scabbard and belt.

Well done, sir!

Thank you very much for your opinion. I was long wandering how to make the scabbard and I think that option is ok. Greetings

Today after a little long break I made something different. The Viking Axe made with traditional methods of forgeing Type L (Petersen), XI - XIIc. Tomorrow I will try to polish it.

Amazing work Damian, loved the video, if I didn't have so much money tied up in other projects I would definitely be bugging you for some work!

Funny, the axe head looks very smooth!

The video is a great idea, I think more craftsmen should do vids to quickly show how their pieces look in hand.

Hallo my friends. Today you can see on pictures the historical way of creation of the cross-guard for my next sword. I will show you also the tool for making a hole.

Huh... I've always kind of wondered about that!

How do you determine how "deep" to cut with the wide part of that tool? Unlike the narrow part, it clearly doesn't go all the way through...

In that case if the width of blade is 50mm then I will make the hole in crossground 54mm. Depth is some 3mm, then after polishin ther will be some 2mm. It can not be deeper, because usualy the crossgroud is 1cm width and bigger depth can make the crossground worse. The smaller hole that is adapted to the hilt I make some 3mm smaller, because I can match the file perfectly. I hope that I explaned it good :-).

I like the clean and simple lines of this sword Damian. It looks to be all business to me. Looking forward to seeing it finished as well as the measurements for it.
