Here we have this knightly arming sword with a 600 High/Low layer random pattern damascus blade. The blade is forged from 600 layer random pattern damascus (made by myself) and the pattern has alternate 30 layer bands, then thicker dark bands and has been laddered to get an undulating pattern down the blade.
The blade pattern is developed by the individual hammer blows that went into making it. The blade guard and pommel are all forged to shape before being ground and finished and the guard and pommel are made from random pattern pattern damascuus. The pommel is forge welded from 3 pieces making it hollow which allows for a slightly bigger pommel and keeps the weight down. The handle is a wood core with twine bindings and then a leather wrap.
