Fantasy Sword design from the Legendary Swords: Project Eletreus series. Differentially hardened blade with running water Damascus pattern and diamond cross sectional geometry. Unique one piece cast brass hilt construction. Made to Order, Ships in 4-6 weeks.
This fully functional Fantasy sword is made for the Legendary Swords Fantasy Sword Project by Master Ye "Michael" Jie, a certified rank 1 master smith recognized and smithing swords at his family forge in the ancient city of Longquan, Zhejiang province.
The blade itself is truly an exemplary piece of functional fantasy sword art. The hand forged and folded 1095 carbon steel is enhanced with a differentially hardened double edge - a Chinese 'hamon', called Shuangxue - which contrasts beautifully with the Damascus pattern that flows down the blade like running water.
With a diamond edge profile, this 30" blade is reinforced for a powerful, authoritative thrust, but the wide blade with edges that run parallel until the tip also make it a very effective cutter, giving it the versatility of a good cut and thrust sword design.
While it is a heavy sword overall - weighing 3.85lbs, the solid brass hilt and handle, which are cast as one piece, make up a good portion of that weight and balance it back towards the hilt, increasing its maneuverability and speed.
The fittings are very ornate and unique, with a knotted dragon themed design - completed by a black ebony wood scabbard with matching brass fittings.
Do not be fooled by cheap and nasty imitations, this sword is the real deal. Almost never seen out of China due to the uncertain market demand and high expense of production.
