Divine Sword of Perseus
Hi Folks
I've just completed a new Divine Sword of Perseus - directly inspired by the prop from the 1981 Clash of the Titans film.
I've posted detailed images and specification at my website: www.fableblades.com/Perseus.ht…
I hope you enjoy it. I'm available for further commissions, be it your childhood dream-sword (which this was) or a sword to leave to your children. Please email me to discuss YOUR bespoke sword (email link at my website).

Dunmaghlas - Medieval Type XIIa Custom Sword

Hi Folks. 
I though you people might like to check out this new sword. It's inspired by Oakeshott's type XII.1 from 'Records of the Medieval Sword'- the quintessential medieval sword.

See it in detail here: www.fableblades.com/Dunmaghlas…

This sword is a little longer in the blade (33.34"), and grip, allowing for purchase of the aft hand - so really a XIIa variation of it. Still very light at 2.4lb / 1095g allowing single handed use.

The blade is also a little wider at 62mm / 2.44", as is the guard to square up to the length of the hilt.

Enjoy.

Please click the link and check this out folks, I hope you enjoy it. I'm so excited to release this sword in to the world at last, after months of gestation - I love it. I started it months ago but haven't been doing a lot of sword work over summer, just some tinkering.

Hi. No I don't do that kind of work sorry. I usually use foundry steel. Though I have a colleague who does pattern welded steel who could make a blade blank for us. 
Thanks
Brendan

I love your style when it comes to swords :la:
They're not too fancy (I don't like that on blades and the like), but got exactly the perfect amount (for me) of being not too simple either. Imma watch you, if that's okay :D
I love finding new smiths as I am kinda picky about weapons.
