Crusader Monk: Legacy Arms Two Handed Viking Sword
Here is one I just finished up. This is a Legacy Arms Two Handed Viking sword. The sword itself is a monster of a blade, which comes pretty plain from the factory. I gave this one a treatment to enhance it's looks for the customer, going for a fantasy Viking appearance with a traditional flair.

The design is a modification of the customer's original design idea. The original idea had to be modified a bit due to the PoB of the sword, the length, and the overall weight. It still turned out pretty close to the original drawing though on this massive shield splitter.

Here is a laundry list of what was done:

- Hand-carved poplar core created, decorated with thick hemp (to make the risers over-sized), then covered with leather.
- Dual raven head strap bridge carved from antique red oak and affixed to scabbard.
- Decorative leather bands added to the scabbard.
- Simple steel chape created and added.
- Grip stripped and reprofiled to give it more of a waisted shape.
- Grip decorated with thick central riser and two smaller ones, then wrapped in leather and bound with cord.
- Satin finish applied to sword furniture.
- 1" leather baldric made then weathered for an antique appearance.

I hope you guys enjoy! :D

Note: This has been the only FREE SHIPPING piece I have gotten out the door thus far, we only have 2 WEEKS LEFT on the End of the World Free Shipping Event - so now is the time to get your sword in for some TLC!


Very nice. The craftsmanship just keeps getting better. Keep up the good work.
Nice work! I always enjoy seeing your work on this site because it's so refreshing and innovative. I really liked that idea of a 'melt job' you applied to a Windlass and have done the same to several of my swords, and I'm really pleased with the results! Keep the posts coming, I'm a huge fan!
