I finished up the bush swords I showed forged out in my last post.

All are 80CrV2 steel, between 14" and 16" blades.

This longest one had a hemp cord wrap with black paracord Turk's head knots, and a raised false edge.

This one with tan and black paracord had a short, fully sharpened top edge per the customer's request.

And finally, the shortest one. I liked the way the butt end of the handle had forged out, so I left it exposed instead of rounding it out and wrapping all the way around.

After having it for a few days, the customer commented, "I can't believe how light and responsive this is for such a large blade. Awesome work my friend! I just can't get over how freakin' awesome this bush sword is. I am sore from swinging it so much. Destroying everything in its path so far. Thank you."

Always glad to have happy customers. :)

Looks really great :clap: . I am still in anticipation of a hand guard equipped model. I know you don't like them but I think it's a real plus for the market.

The Twizzler - Maybe some day as an integral guard, maybe as a mid-tech. At the moment, I've been fortunate that they seem to sell as quickly as I make them available. :)
