Hand-Forged Scimitar

I have been making swords and knives as an amateur blacksmith for a year now. I decided I would take on a big challenge with the Ryobi tools I have. This scimitar took a lot of work and sweat( some days I worked in 99 degree weather. Though it was hard, I take pride in knowing I created this beautiful sword.

  • What an impressive project! What was most challenging?

    • Thanks! The most challenging part was mounting the hilt onto the sword. At the present moment I do not have a wielder. So I finally got it to glue on for right now.

  • Is it sharp? Do you make hunting or fishing knives? Very cool!

    • I mainly make specially designed knives. The more iconic the better. ;)
