I am in the process of making swords for all my kids. This one is for my 6 yr old daughter. I gave it to her yesterday and she was a pirate. Today she was running around slaying vampires. As long as she doesn’t take out her brother or sister, I will call it a job well done. I sure how I don’t regret this. LOL

Its made with walnut and epoxy inlays.

Thanks for taking a look.

Oh no, nothing could possibly go wrong with this :-)

Great job though!

@ Monti, I am making swords for her brothers and sisters also. She should beware. Lol

Shilds would be good, maybe some armor. Lol

@ MontanaBob, I started these at least a year ago. I’m thinking I should have waited a little longer, but wait to long and they are teenagers and might want to hit me with then. Lol

Very nice and just wait…......................LOL In the months to come I am sure you will probably be “repairing” some swords too! Great job especially on the inlay. Very well done. Love the green on the handle.

My almost 3 year old daughter is currently obsessed with all things pirate. She geeks out every time she sees a picture of a treasure chest. Maybe I’ll need to plan for one these too.
