Description

Here we have this hand and a half bastard sword with a 360 layer random pattern damascus blade. The blade is forged from 360 layer random pattern damascus (made by myself) and the pattern has been laddered to get an undulating pattern down the blade ( especially in the fuller.) the blade has a wonderful chatoyancy to it the pattern changes as you look at in in the light.

The blade pattern is developed by the individual hammer blows that went into making it. The damascus blade and guard and silicone bronze pommel are all forged to shape before being ground and finished. The blade is diamond ground around the fuller and transitions to a gentle lenticular grind towards the tip. The blade is lively and feels good in both one and two hands. The handle is a wood core with twine bindings and then a leather wrap.

I would be happy to make a sheath for this sword please enquire for a price.
