New blade from one of our very own.

A central place to talk about weapons and armour, as it relates to your kit. This is where you show it of or talk about making it. Discussing the relative merits of types of weapons goes in the WMA section.

New blade from one of our very own.

Postby Elwindil » Wed Oct 07, 2020 7:50 pm

So, I finally got these pictures resized to fit the forum. It's taken a while. This is a piece from our very own Eric C. and I couldn't be happier with it. She's light, balanced, and moves well in the hand, the grip fits perfectly in my rather large mitts. I am more than well pleased with her, and have due to the leaf motif and the fact that she's sharp and rather pointy decided it shall be named Thorn.

looking nice :mrgreen:
Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf-women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for Dwarf-men.
Aragorn: It's the beards.

Blade is 1095 HCS, guard and pommel are mild steel, handle is desert ironwood with brass spacers. As I've said previously, Eric's work is phenomenal and outstanding. I think with this piece he's gone above and beyond what I could have expected, and I am more than happy with it.
