Oooh, pretty things. I like Aragorn's ring... (ObSnigger)
I don't suppose the swords would be worth owning, the balance on display things like that is generally terrible...
The swords are fun - but simply stainless steel. It also mentions the fact they're from Toledo in Spain - which makes me think they're probably Art-Gladius ones.
Basically they're shaped bits of stainless steel - not hardened, tempered or balanced.
And no scabbard either.
Me like shiny swords.
They had a scabbard listed separately at the bottom of the page... but if they're not even hardened, you're not going to be wandering around bashing things with it, and it would probably look better left bare on a wall.
I like the look of these ones
more anyway... I'm more of a point-work person than a hack-and-slash type, no bulging muscles y'see :)
oooh! I lost that url ages ago - cheers!
I've got a modified version of the sword:
with a rounded pommel instead of the geometric shaped one. Looks lovely in the corner of my bedroom ;)
Cool. Did you mod it yourself? I bet it looks a lot nicer with the round pommel... that hexagonal affair has an unfortunate air of Chanel #5 about it ;)
No - i know a man who makes swords... :)
Channel 5...?! *chuckle*
, not channel
(although actually it's not Chanel #5 that has a lid that shape anyway... does anyone know which perfume does? I'm curious now)
*bangs head on keyboard*
mondays - i can't even read properly!
You have a sword?
You. Have a sword.
Not that I have a thing about shiny sharp things either or anything, but. ~thud~
Would this be a bad time to mention that i have 4?
(the one above, a samurai and 2 'Klingon' blades)
Tempering is easy, i could do it in my sleep. If i had a kiln and slept in heatproof clothes.
Hardening would take more than 50 years if it was already made though...
