Swords
This page is just opening, and waiting for transfer of pictures.    unfortunately 6 swords got away without
having pictures taken for lack of camera batteries at the time.  
Bear with us, and all future swords will get pictures taken.
On this page you will find a variety of swords,  most have been made for fun in our spare time.  There are some
that have been collected from friends during their travels, and others have been acquired as payment for debts.  
My Father used to make machete's and trimming
knives when I was a kid.  I have a couple of those
items, and keep them as reference.

the hilt that pulls out by
grasping the knob. it is held in

used for stabbing things or
keeping things at a distance

The swords that I make can be plated or finished further than they are now. Mostly, I have made them as
sample shapes I was curious about.   
That said, you can assume that the metal is not tempered or forged, just shaped and sharpened.
However; Several of the Samurai Swords are the real thing, extremely sharp, flexible, and strong.

Mine are designs that can definitely be finished to a level that will look good on a wall or in a movie, and up
till now they have simply  been something fun to play with.  The Fencing Sword is definitely fun to pick
flowers with as it is extremely sharp, light, and accurate.
ENJOY....
Maybe one of these days we will fire up the kiln, take some steel, and fold a few bars to see what happens
when we want more than the design  itself.
Send a sketch of something you would like made, or make an offer on one already made.
4" Copper Stars
I'm not sure about the legality
of these items, but they are
fun to throw and can be
deadly.  a tree at 50 feet can
easily be struck and
penetrated at least 3/4 inch
with very little effort
