  • I feel like with the way the butt of the handle is, that it would look nice with a spherical stone of some sorts in it

  • You totally missed an opportunity for another video to this series which could have been making an elaborate sheath for it, what is a blade without a sheath?!?!?

  • I love the handle but I don’t love the guard it’s too simple for the grand dragon design

    ethen bremnerethen bremner16 dager siden
  • If it were me and I had gone through all that work to carve the handle, I think I would have made a damascus blade, blackened the bronze and polished the high spots, and then finished it by setting rubies or sapphires in the eyes. Still a beautiful piece though!

    Lucas DulLucas DulMåned siden
  • It's missing something. The sea dragons are usually guarding or battling something. Maybe a nice etching on the blade or a sheath.

    FlederratteFlederratteMåned siden
  • Well done as ever! I love the blackened look. It ties it into the Renaissance perfectly. I think the antiqued look on the bronze is excellent. It just pulls the whole identity together in my opinion. It's beautiful.

  • I really like the rough, brutal look the blade has in general. I've never liked overly ornate weapons, so this strikes a really nice balance for me similar to the engraved Vikingr sword.

  • You need to try to forge a fishing filet knife should be a good challenge seeing that the base of the blade needs to be narrow and stuff but about halfway the blade needs to be extra flexible as well being thin relative to other knifes and wicked sharp

  • I think those scales need some smoothing out. The rough hammered look just seems out of place. I noticed the heads of the serpents were pretty smooth and I was hoping you would do the same for the rest of the scales. The blade is amazing though, and I like the shape of the guard.

Also I think your project vision through it all was exemplary and a very solid finish, the result shows your desire to stay at the creative apex and keep us entertained at the same time. Plus now, it's everyone's dream to have a little Alec inside them!
