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.
