Re: Morgul Blade.

Were the blades corrupted when their masters were or were the blades made for them after they were corrupted ? It could make a difference in their construction ! For instance a blade made prior would have been a blade made by normal means. It may have been given magical properties but at it's core a...

"And more deadly to Frodo was this!' He stooped again and lifted up a long thin knife. There was a cold gleam in it. As Strider raised it they saw that near the end its edge was notched and the point was broken off. " LR I:12, Flight to the Ford Ok you got me. Practically thinking, it sho...

Re: Tightening a peened pommel

Sometimes, peening a tang can take quite a while. It's a slow process when starting a new peen. I always miss the tang a few times and have to refinish the pommel. Not fun. But yeah, a ball peened hammer works really well for this. Glad it worked out for you. Try a separate peen. Use a carriage bol...

Re: Morgul Blade.

Being that the Nine are armed with hand and a half swords, I think the movie version's blade is a little narrow. Something along a Cinquedea blade size. Yeah I hated the inverted guard too.

Re: Tightening a peened pommel

Heating the peen shouldn't cause enough heat to transfer far up the tang. Certainly not far enough to alter the hardness. The issues you may have though are damaging the grip and grip wrap. You can shrink the wood core or dry out the leather wrap at lower temps than you'd need to damage the hardness...

Re: My kit as of now

The bedroll does indeed just go over my head and I'm a pretty big fan so far though I've yet to test it out in the field. The only issue besides the deteriorating strap that I can see being a problem is that it hugs very tight to the body. As far as I'm concerned at the moment this is a good thing ...
