Hand and a Half Sword
  • Hand and a Half Sword

    This bastard sword is a true work of art, handcrafted by Andrew Golabek of Golabekrafts. The blade is made of 80CRV2 high carbon steel, renowned for its toughness and durability. The sword's cross-guard is crafted from high carbon steel and securely soldered in place, while the pommel is made from antique wrought iron forged and folded together with 32 layers of >150-year-old wagon wheel rims, making this sword truly unique.

    The handle is carved from Katalox wood, also known as Mexican royal ebony, and offers a comfortable grip. The curly maple scabbard is dyed with a black aniline solution and lined with red felt to ensure a snug fit. With a blade length of 76 cm and an overall length of 110 cm, this sword is the perfect size for a hand-and-a-half grip.

    While this particular sword has been previously sold, Andrew Golabek of Golabekrafts can make more upon custom order.
