But in the meantime, here it is – version 2.0 of the $279.99 Daywalker Sword:

Making of – Behind the Scenes

First the redesign was submitted as a 1:1 scale blueprint by the designer of the original Doomsday Daywalker Sword, Jason Woodard.

There are some subtle differences that came out as Chris Palmer brought the design from paper and turned it into steel, and some not so subtle improvements, like the deerskin leather wrapped handle.

Here is how it got from paper to steel – starting with the basic blank and template for all future orders of this model:

The first rough grind before heat treatment:

And of course, the bare blade after heat treatment:

8 strategically placed pins are then inserted and the handle firmly epoxied in place:

Then the handle is contoured and shaped before three additional brass pins are inserted, ensuring the handle is as sturdy as is humanly possible and contributing greatly to the swords overall durability.

Then after some final finishing touches, it is done!
