Here is a 23" Dagger (or short sword if you prefer) made to go along with the Conan themed project I've done. Sword still on the way, should be done pretty soon.
Made from very tough CPM 3V steel. It's made to take some abuse.
Heat and cryo treated.
The handle is made from snakewood which is also very tough (incredibly dense) and quite beautiful.
Full tang of course
The pommel and quillion (crossguard) was sculpted and cast here in bronze. It will natrually patina (antique) over time to the more 'expected' bronze coloring.
