I make my swords are primarily from 5160 High Carbon Spring Steel. I do my own heat treating and tempering. Swords are tempered to 52 degrees on the C scale. They are forged to shape and then ground to final size and shape. For handles, I primarily use natural hardwoods from all over the world.
Bloodwood Broad Sword
This sword features a blade that measures 30 3/4 inches long and 2 inches wide with a slight taper measuring 1 1/2 inches wide, 2 inches from the point. It has a double-fuller, that runs 18 inches down the blade from the guard. Each one is 3/8 inch wide. The handle is made of Bloodwood. The 8 3/4 inch wide guard and the 2-inch wheel pommel are made out of 1018 steel. The sword weighs in at a total of 3 lbs, 4.6 ozs, and the POB is 5 inches in front of the guard. This soword does not have a sheath at this time, but one could be made in short order, by my wife, Trena. The blade is not sharpened right now, but we will sharpen it for free if you want. Please allow a few extra days for this to happen.
