First Medieval Sword

I finally made it out of the Vendal and Viking ages and in to the Middle ages.
This sword is a Collaboration with the smiths at the MAD Dwarf workshop.
It is an Oakeshott type XIIIb blade in Damascus steel, forged by the Men over at MAD, and a Brazilnut hilt in wrought iron, copper, hardwood, and black steel crafted by me.

I will be taking more pictures after I do the final polishing.

Unlike most collaboration pieces this piece is available for purchase on a first come first served basis.
