This is my new wooden sword, that I might be King and knight people when I go to Burning Man.

The blade is cherry with a zebrawood guard and redheart pommel. Cashmere silk wrap on the handle.

The runes are Elder Futhark (the oldest runic language known), and say “Peace through victory” on one side, and “Victory through strength” on the other, and are inlaid with gold leaf. Shellac finish over all, several coats of 3/4 pound cut rubbed in.

When not in use, it looks great on the wall!

It looks great. I’m sure that you will have a lot of fun with it at Burning Man.

It’s nice for ceremonial use, but if someone were to attempt regicide then you would be hard pressed to defend yourself with it. You know what they say – Cherry blades are for knighting, not for smiting.
