Nearly finished the guard and pommel.
Using 40 year old redgum fence post as the wood.
Having trouble finding the right size bone for the grip.


 i now know i can make a wooden ball.
Todays effort.
A gladius blade.
Now to find some bone for the handle.
 Blank cut.
 Ground
 Sanded
Rough polish.
Not going overboard with the polish as this is a weapon in use not a show piece.

Another set of manacles and knife #2.

Cleaned out the back of my clothes dryer.
This is a shot of where the heating element sits.
Scary amount of fluff and bra wires.
And yes there is burn marks.

Today we have stocks.
Hardwood with hand forged hinge and hasp.
Nearly happy with it.

Next one should be better, but this one cuts so
its a success
Oh and its made from a bit of car leaf spring.
