TURKISH SABRE No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

Couple of Turkish sabrres for my nephews. Main body was made of pallet wood pine, outer side of handle strenghtened with walnut. Length 40 cm, finish wood oil. I didn’t sharpened blades since they are too young…just in case of some accident. I cut all shapes on bandsaw and sanded them on belt sander and oscillating spindle sander.

Very nice work Ivan. The long curve on them really makes them a cool sabre. Next will be a pair of shields.

That’s pretty good looking wall art, when they are not using them. Good job on those…
