I made this sword for my nephew. It’s made with cherry and Walnut. I used hand planes to get the blade carve down to size, and my belt/disk sander to finish it off. Bandsaw to cut out the hilt. Some hand sanding & Danish oil for final finish.

woodbutcher, sorry, I usually am better at tacking pictures, but that’s all I got… Maybe this weekend when I give it to him, I’ll get a good snap of the smile on his face with his new weapon ;-)

I’ve done swordwork most of my life. The lad has good form.
