Mosaic Damascus Gladius
For your consideration I present to you my main creation for Blade Show 2019.

[ Linked Image ]

The Gladius has always been the sword which called out to me among others. There is an ineffable sense of dignity and honorable fatigue about this sword, the sort of melancholy which a tired soldier feels right before he climbs the last hill on his way home from a long campaign. This piece is especially precious to me as it is my first gladius executed in mosaic pattern damascus. It is the end of a whole journey as a craftsman, and the beginning of a whole other.

Materials: Mosaic Damascus of 15N20/1095 and 80crv, Granidillo Wood, Karelian Birch, silver, and bronze.

There are several videos of me creating this sword on my new youtube channel if you wish I can link you to them. I am offering this sword for sale here before anywhere else as I would prefer for a personal monumental piece as this to go to someone that truly understands it.

I am asking $5,850 .
Sold to a dealer. Thanks for looking!
Not sure about others, but though I have learned a little here about blade making over time I suspect any comment could not remotely do justice to your work on this. Less diplomatically... wow! Thank you for sharing this.
