Custom Hanger

2 posts in this topic

I know I promised a full tutorial on this piece and I will write one up and get it on the site, but for now, here she is.

This fall I finished this hanger sword for a re-enactor and I just got it uploaded to our site and thought that I would share it with you all.

It features a custom shaped wide sharp 27" blade with distal taper. double hand ground fullers(Swatton style). A short false edge at the tip. A custom shaped clamshell with a forged thumb ring. Spiral fluted cocobolo handle. A wrought iron end cap that was ground to shape. A forged Iron knucklebow that was left crusty(forge scale) by request of the customer.
