'nuther semi-long pointy thing


Recommended Posts

This is a sort of mini-sword I made out of a drop piece of leaf spring. It's got an 18-inch blade and is 24-inches overall. It has a very comfortable feel to it. There are some issues with the blade, but generally it has a nice taper to it for the length of the blade. The handle isn't anything fancy. It is just turned walnut, attached via, epoxy. The tang is notched for better grip on the epoxy. The transition from the blade to tang is rounded instead of sharp. The hand guard is spring steel, annealed, and is pinned on. The balance is about 2 inches in front of the guard.


It weighs a tiny tiny bit less than 1-pound


(The blade returned true after each of the stress bends in the vise.)










I'm no bladesmith but I'm happy! I just need to cut out a wooden scabbard now!

Nice blade Dave! I can't think of any improvements.


Have you considered making Seaxes or sgian dubhs?


No matter what you say about being a blade guy, it's getting harder to believe all the time. I'm thinking you're THAT guy.


Frosty The Lucky.
