    When I saw that movie I knew I had to make one . It was actually what got me started in knife making . Well , many years later I finally got around to it .
    This sword was convex ground from a piece of 36" x 2" x 1/4" D-2 bar stock .
    O.A.L. is 31 "
    Blade is double edged and 20 " tip to guard .
    Fittings are also D-2 with red liner and leather spacer's , black paracord wrapped over leather
    weight is 2 pounds 2 oz. , balance point is 1-1/2" in front of guard .
    Paul Bos heat treated ,
    It is sharp as I found out too many times so far .
    This piece was designed to be a thrust and cut warfare weapon , not for chopping up trees or cars . It will do that but I would hope one would not .

    It has 2 imperfections , a grind mark between the 1st and 2nd hole and the micarta at the end of the tang had a gap that was filled with dyed epoxy .

    I am asking $450.00 for a USPS M/O or $460.00 using pay-pal , I am splitting pay-pal fees with buyer.
    Shipping will be actual cost from my zip code 98638 to ?? The weight is about 4 lbs . Sorry but shipping only in the cont. USA for this.SOLD
    Hope is is liked , thanks for looking and comments .

    Id like to see some pictures of this. Im also wondering if it can be made again. Im a fan of movies like steel dawn, and i am a huge DavidCarradine fan and i collect his movies and i own a signed Hanzo sword .David used a sword in the movie the warrior and the sorceress and i was wondering if it was possible for anyone to make a sword like that It had the symbol of his order The Homeracs on it

    [​IMG]

    that pic shows the hilt

    [​IMG]

    and the blade of the sword looks to be about three feet long and it is slightly curved with no fuller. if i could ever have this sword made i would never need another thing as long as i lived lol seems crazy but i love that sword
