Carved "Dwarven" Blade...sort of


Well-Known Member
My first carved/sculpted blade. It started with one of our BL Hunters and took a hard turn towards a dwarven or elven style blade. Hand rubbed 1095 carbon steel. Spalted pecan, turquois inlay (real turquois! It aint that fake Chinese crap!) Deer rawhide wrap. I did sort of a bone charm through the thong tube. I can’t recall but the bones are either bobcat or squirrel I “acquired” 15 or so years ago. The sheath is modified for a “hanging” horizontal carry with a forged mild steel pendant. The spine and the belly are all “chipped” and each groove in the texturing was deliberate to flow with the blade. I really had a lot of fun making this one. Lots of hours but worth it.
