I forged this one from spring steel, its handle is oak with wrought iron pins and fittings. I wanted it to look as orcish as possible, coming directly from Grom Hellscreams forge Its total length is 60 cm.
Yes Slizard, it was a while ago. Whoever it was who original bought it off you was thinning out their collection, or needed funds, or something, so it was in the classifieds on britishblades for a while last year or the year before. I just meant that I regret not having the funds at the time.
Nice work, and i like the chain finger guard. Not quite sure if I would call it orcish, it needs that quenched in blood and handle wrapped in the skins of enemies look to be truly orcish. A very nice blade tho, I would take on zombies with it.
well at this time im short of free spending money so not probably for a while though i am concerned about importing it into Australia. not sure if it will get through customs, but i suppose if its declared as a ornamental collectible then it should be ok. what is u'r experience with this?
Oh ok, I understand Your country's customs laws permit the shipping of single edged weapons, regardless of the size! I have sent very large choppers (above 60 cm) with no problem in the past to Australia. Double edged steels, like daggers or double edged swords are prohibited, for some reason. BUT, double edged weapons with one false edge are also allowed interesting isn't it?
