War Sword

This sword has a blade from the Albion moat sale. The blade came to me as a hardened and tempered blank that needed to be ground to final thickness and then finished out. The tang was a little shorter than I wanted so I removed about an inch off the blade at the shoulder to lengthen the tang and correspondingly shorten the blade.

The cross-guard and pommel are bronze. The guard is banzaipeened to the tang for a secure fit. The pommel is hot peened as well as banzaipeened on the grip side. The grip is a pinned hardwood core with a cotton cord wrap and risers with a leather over wrap.
