Another one of the sword designs for the portfolio.
This time it's supposed to be a "neutral" sword.
This time the proportions are a bit more conventional. The blade is still pretty heavy though
The decorations are slightly inspired by a quite famous Warhammer sword. If you think you know which one that is, give it a shot in the comments. There is a cool prize in it.
(looking at the original sword again, there isn't much resemblance so this one might be quite hard.
The ornaments are cast bronze and are inlaid in the blade. Small pieces of red garnet were inset into that bronze. (in a very germanic fashion)
The handguard has bits of copper wire beaten into the metal to make these decorative strips.
The handle is made of hard wood and carved to look slightly anthropomorphic.
And I'm not sure if it reads that way, but the bulb of the pommel is hollow.
