Step 1: The Design
working with a customer then I use the feedback from these sketches to refine the design.
The Final sketches for this project include the profile view and a full-scale rendering of the hilt
Step 2: Forging the blade
The invocation for this piece is writen in the modified Aglo-Saxon Futhark and reads:
Forged in the cunning fire, honor and duty to inspire.
If you have any questions about this please visit the philosophy page on my website:
For most of my forging I use a 6 lb. hammer
In this case the blade is 15" long and 2" wide.
Step 13: Filing
and close to the final dimension I want.
