Howdy, Some of y'all may know I tend not to repeat designs, however I had the extra handle left over from my previous, nearly identical, tanto from a couple months ago, and I couldn't help myself. It's a century-old file I reforged and heat treated with APG-36 clay and Parks 50. 12.25" OAL, 4" handle. Sheath is goat leather I got from the only tannery in Cyprus while on vacation there. Comments and critique encouraged, Theo
Still putting the final touches, but she's 99% there. Another 50+ year old file, forged to shape, deferentially heat treated with APG-36 and Parks 50 quench, and a 3D printed high-density polymer handle that was designed to fit the tang like a glove. I was tempted to water quench but wasn't willing to risk it since I was already leaving the teeth on. Also included a pic of an acrylic knife display I made myself at my new job, designing for and operating lasercutters.
Hi guys.. I've spent the last 3 months searching for a definiative answer to my sword riddle.. After much discussion with the Victoria and Albert museum Metal department, it seems by shear fluke that i have managed to un-earth a real Celtic Sword in the best condition they have ever seen with my metal detector. i collect swords anyway so as you can imagine i was W***ing when i found this regardless of what it was. The sword is 550mm long to the tang crank and weighs 776 grams or .76 kg, so fairly short and light This sword is so amazing to hold and nearly 2313 years old,
