• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/
  • The search engine is not working correctly. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience.
  • I've implemented new password tools to try and cut down on the number of people getting their profiles compromised by reusing the same passwords that they have used elsewhere. If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

    Thanks for your support!

I ground the blade etc. then started chopping random objects to make sure it will do what it should when I put it all together.



Eventually... Peening the tang.



I still need to do a few odds and ends before it is truly finished. But, it is to the stage of being a fully functional sword.

Gnarly. Are those barrels insulated?

What's the heat source? O/A torch?

Here it is hanging in my living room. I still need to do a few things. But, I figured I wouldn't mind staring at it during commercials.
