I Forge Iron

3 core Pattern welded sword


Recommended Posts

A while ago I was commissioned to make a sword blade. The blade is a 3 core interupted and offset twist with each bar having 14 layers, with a wrapped cutting edge of about 450 layers.  

I supplied the blade in a forged to shape finish to the customers spec of a 32" blade, 2 1/4" at the hilt and 1 1/2" wide at two inches back from the tip. These specs are about the same as a Giebig 3 classification blade.  

 

All the grinding, fixtures and fittings and leatherwork were by Rob Miller the Cutler/Bladesmith I supplied the blade to.
