Last year I showed all of you my first five wooden reproductions of real swords. They certainly were well received with over 2600 views to date. Here are five more. One is a Crusader sword with inset Maltese Crosses and a simulated wire wrapped handle. The Latin says “in this sign we will conquer”. The one with red and yellow in the handle was inspired by El Cid’s sword. The one in the middle is a complete fantasy with the carved Boar on the top and 176 seed pearls affixed to a bronze guard. I imagine it could have been wielded by a Hungarian King 500 years ago. The sword with the curved guard is like one ZORRO used.

Each of these swords has been constructed of three pieces: a blade with a tang, a guard and a handle. The carving was SUBTRACTIVE, nothing has been glued on, all finished pieces came out of larger pieces of wood.
