Given the weather here is so cold and my garage is not heated, I haven’t been in there much these past weeks. So I thought I might post some older projects I have pics of. This one was fun to make but is full of little flaws I always notice. Still, as I use this for practice I don’t worry too much about the little things. It’s gotten regular use against a wood pell and has held up nicely.
The wood is red oak, grip has leather under a leather cord wrap, the fuller and ends of the cross have been torched black and the whole thing has been treated with several coats of mineral oil. Blade is 30” long and the grip is 4.5”. From tip to the peen block is one length of wood, the cross is wedged onto the shoulders, and as you can see the pommel is two pieces channelled down their center for the tang.
