Awesome Custom Damascus Blade Medieval Short Sword - Hand Forged - Wire Wrapped Handle


True hand forged Damascus steel - Brass and wire wrapped handle
Amazing folded steel blade pattern

Damascus steel blades are created by forging multiple layers of various steels into a solid block called a billet.
The billet is then folded and re-welded many times to create multiple layers and patterns.
When acid is applied to the blade, it attacks the layers of hard and soft steels differently, highlighting the attractive patterns in the steel.
The combination of layered hard and soft steels creates blade flexibility, hardness and durability and produces invisible serrations on the cutting edge that aid in cutting.

This incredible short sword, designed to look like a medieval piece, is not only stunning in looks, but also rock solid because of a robust hidden full tang construction.
The blade is the result of hours of forging from 1095 and 15N20 high carbon steels into 420 layers, resulting in an amazing pattern.
The cutting edge has been heat treated to attain a hardness of 55 - 58 on the Rockwell scale.
The blade has been given an edge on both sides, but for safety reasons not finally sharpened. It can however be sharpened to a razor edge if required.
The combination of steel wire wrapping and brass spacers, culminating in a pommel from Damascus steel, perfectly compliments the medieval blade.
An intricately hand filed bolster of Damascus steel rounds off the handle perfectly.
Accompanying this incredible piece, is a hand tooled thick quality leather sheath, custom made for this sword.
