Hallo:)

I want to introduce you to Great Type XIIIa with double fuller. That is biggest sword in my history of work. Now we will make nice scabbard for it. Soon you will see ready work.

Very nice. I like the novel combination of the double-fuller XIII with the flaring, perforated cross.

Thank you Happy From the end of the fuller, the blade has the shape of a lens. The sword is gradually shaded.

Today I want to show you historical way to make the scabbard socket. To make it you can use copper or brass plate - 3cm X 20cm X 1,5mm. It's best to have a prepared shape but I want not to make in that way and I used some ball on a wire that you can see on picture. Earlier you must warm the material up to 400C. I use a propane oxygen burner to shape my socket. Enjoy

Today the work on the great Type XIIIa is fihished. I am very happy and I must say… I just love this job! That is my real passion. All elements of the sword are hand made by me ad my lovely wife with traditional methods. Only the brass buckle to the belt was ordered. The sword after the hardening process is very straight and suitably flexible for hardness 54HRC. The first sreps of work was hard for me, because only the third time I made good fullers – that I was satisfact. The sword was sharpened with high quality belts to sharpening and by hands using special stones. What can I say – the blade is amazing sharp. The scabbard inside is padded with natural wool. The ornaments on the scabbard are inspired with oryginal ornaments on skin from XIII century. I will give you all dementions of the sword that I managed to achieve this sword.

Total lenght: 123,5cm
Blade width at the base: 5,4cm
Blade lenght: 94,5cm
Balance: 13cm
Weight: 1815g
Grip lenght: 21cm
Edge is sharp
Full functional, made with high quality steel 51CrV4 (6150),
Hardened 54HRC

Wow! That looks magnificent!

The double fullers and perforated cross are an uncommon combination-- but it works!

I like the lines of this one Damian. I am looking forward to seeing this one completed. Do you have measurements for it and a target weight that you are looking to be at?

That's a perfectly proportioned one-hand medieval sword. I really like those last two pieces.
