Molnar Sword Finished by deathatsix Molnar Sword Finished by deathatsix
Ok. here it is all finished as it's going to be. this is my best work yet. it's a sword i made for my realy good friend for her 50th birthday. i'm realy happy with how it turned out. the etching could be better but for my first atempt at engraving ever, i'm happy. pictures don't do this sword much justice. well i gave it to her and she loves it very much. everyone at the party loved it. it's nice to hear compliments like that when i put my heart and soul into this one.
i'm just realy sorry i couldn't get the wooden coffin case done for this. i'll make it another time.
ok as for all the semi technical stuff. eh. i'm not going into too much. if you have any questions just ask.
the blade was a 1 1/2" piece of steel with the extended parts welded on. the hand guard is out of a stainless steel piece i had laying around. the pommel is made from a bunch of stuff. part drive shaft, part big nut, part steel rod, part alluminum tube, and part glass thingy that i found laying around the workshop. i had thought of puting a piece of quartz in the claw but in the end i went with the glass thingy. and the handle is wood wraped in black vinyl, then wrapd around with stainless steel wire.
the etching i did with a dremmel. and special thanks to Eddie90 [link] on the inscription translation. it reads "May the spirit of the wolf guide your soul."
basicaly it was alot of grinding, welding, sanding, a little hammering, and alot of pollishing.
more swords and daggers to come

It's a nicely shaped sword. The title caught my eyes: Molnár is a hungarian name.

Looks amazing...I do stock removal atm too, and while theyre not as good as forged ones they're still better than 95% of the swords out there...I make mine to play with and enjoy, and haven't had any fail yet. Yours looks fantastic, how'd you polish it? and that's really incredible dremel work too.

deathatsix Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2009
Thank you very much, that means alot to me from a fellow craftsman. i totally agree with you on the points. my swords would still out do the budk mass produced stuff. but yeah forged swords are still the best strength wise.
as far as the polishing, it takes alot of sanding down. after all the grinding and file work i sand it usualy starting with 80 grit and work my way down to a fine grit anywhere around 400 or even finer depending on what i want to get to.(and thats either dual action sander or hand sanding with a backing block, or both). then i use a polishing wheel with a couple different gardes of rouge.
really depending on how shiny i want to get i could make it look like a mirror. hope that helps.
and the dremel work was done mainly by using a fine sharpy to mark what i wanted to do then i used a dremel with a small cutoff wheel to etch it.. very carefully haha. Thanks again.

It looks pretty good to me, but I personally prefer forged swords.
Reply
:icondeathatsix:
deathatsix Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2008
its ok. honestly there's no comparison. forged swords are stronger and over all more durable then stock removal kinds. but, i do what i can. if i could afford a forge i would get or make one but. for now, this is the best i can do. and though forged swords im sure take alot of work and effort, i put as much effort and work into these when i'm working on one that is meaningful to me like this one.

Well, that's understandable. Besides, it's hard to learn everything required for swordsmithing all at once.

very nice sword!! what have you used to hack the blade?? :)

deathatsix Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2008
You mean to make it? I used various grinders, Sanders, cutting tools, a pollisher, and my favorite, the dremmel. If that's the wrong answer then I'm not following what you mean. Thanks very much for the complement.

truly a fantastic sword,
but i gotta ask how you did the blade, did you actually cast it or was it a solid piece of steel that you cut?
Reply
:icondeathatsix:
deathatsix Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2008
it was a solid piece that i cut and shaped. i wish i knew how to cast and had the equipment to do it but thats maybe something for later on. thank you for the compliment.
