For those of you with an interest (on this forum it should be MOST of you), and who did not see my post on the weapons and armour forum, I have made a replica/interpretation of the Sword of truth. I posted it on another forum, and was eventually convinced to sell it to another forumite. I post it here for interest sake, and to get feedback from fans on what they like/don't like about my interpretation.
The blade of the sword itself comes from a bare production blade made by Fulvio Del Tin in italy. It is made of a carbon spring steel called CK 55 which is Europe's version of AISI 1050.
The rest, the guard, handle Pommel and embellishments were made by myself.
The whole thing weighs in at just over 3 lbs. My goal was to make a functional version of the Sword of truth that could be actually used, not just put up on a shelf or hung on the wall and admired. I hope the fellow who bought it appreciates it as much as I did. I think I will have to make another, for I miss it alot.
Anyways, enough about it, here is the sword, in as much glory as my crappy photography skills will allow...
