Introduction: Three-quarter Hilt Rapier

This is a sword I made. I constructed the guard, grip and pommel from scratch, and put it on stage-combat rapier blade. Everything was made of steel, shaped with an oxy-acetylene torch, MIG welder, grinders and various files. The grip is a piece of wood with a carved design which was wire-wrapped, and then hammered to reveal the design.

Wow! I'd really like to know how to do this

Beautiful! I'm sure it was a lot of work. If you ever build another, please do an Instructable.

Just curious... where did you get your training? What is your background, if you don't mind my asking.

Keep up the great work!
