Another French Hanger

9 posts in this topic

I am heading to Fort Zachary Taylor this friday and I needed something to wear on my side. I wanted to make something subtle and sweet. I left the edge blunt on this for the time being. If I still have this sword when I return, I plan to grind more off the edge making it lighter and adding a sharp edge to it.

This is wonderful work. I need to start saving for a blade from you or actually a matched set of stage and combat ready.
