This is a sword and left hand dagger that I made by hand out of a leaf spring that I cut length way. It was straightened out by a sledge hammer, ground with an angle grinder (cooled often with a spray bottle), and formed with a file. The handles are hollowed out pieces of scrape oak furniture. It took me a while but I finally finished it as promised in the last post that I made. I hope you like them. I got the idea form this website . Thanks again for all your responses and your information.

Very cool.

Did you heat treat them or just stay with the spring temper?

I did not want to heat treat them. If you check out the website where I got the ideas form you can get more of an idea of what I was doing. They give some pretty good information on cold forging. Thanks for the reply!

Jason, the mask really makes your knife/ sword display stand out!
