Well here goes nothing and I expect many people cutting the idea down but oh well I have always been know to do things this way. I am looking for as many tips and tricks as possible to enable me to forge out a replica of frostmourne a sword origionaly made as a single handed blade but a friend of mine wants it to be a two handed monster. Here is a picture of the blade itself. the dimensions he wants for this blade are as such. Width 110mmm just after the last two little horns Witdh 150mm between largest side horns Length 1095mm thickness of blade 14mm handle 400mm from end of handle to beggining of blade Guard 400mm from end of skull to end of skull I will be using a length of 14mm by 1000mm by 800mm spring steel as the original billet Pretty XXXX big at a total of 1500mm almost as tall as me. I know what I am asking is ridiculous but who ever got anywhere the easy way. With this project and all of my others I will be learning many of the skills I will need. I always seem to over do things but its the way I learn. So please any suggestions, tips, tricks or comments are welcome. I am especially in need of some commentary on the tang and hilt of the sword as the blade I can do without to much trouble. Thank you all for your help it will be much apreciated.
