Mythos Hunters Sword

The Sword of Sneferu is a Mythos hunting group from Worlds of Cthulhu magazine, for use with the Call of Cthulhu game.

The sword can be used one or two handed and looks small next to the massive Mythos hunters dagger [link] but is a full sized middle eastern saber. Functionally it is almost like a Katana because the long grip, but its blade comes from a cheap Indian tulwar.

Made to match the dagger this is another game prop. It has both versions of the elder signs upon it.

nice, did you hand beat the steel or carve it away from cold rolled? This is really cool :D

I used the blade from a Tulwar (think saber) that was part of my best friends wedding almost 20yrs ago.

I stripped it clean and slightly bent it to give it a more curved shape.

I built the hilt way up on the sword covering up the blade about 5 inches. It's full tang, sort of more half full tang, the bolt tang goes through the hilt the rest of the way. Blade is unsharpened but has a very sharp point, and is of a cheap low carbon steel.

It was made as a Prop for a role playing game.
