Custom Swords

pastswords

For the past 12 years that I’ve been learning this craft; my goal has not merely been to make fully functional edged weapons. My goal from the start has always been to pour my heart, soul, and spirit into each individual sword I forge. I dont want to just simply make historical tools meant solely for human harm, I want to forge artifacts that inspire and spark the human imagination. I want to craft swords that have life and that tell hope-filled and mind-sanctifying stories of courage, commitment, heroism, and truth. I’m still learning more and more about this endless craft every single day, and I hope to never stop.

In making each piece I aim to handcraft my swords using the most traditional methods whenever possible. Methods that include hand forging the blades and hilt components with hammer and anvil, forging my own “damascus”/pattern-welding steel, intricate wood carvings on grips and scabbards done by hand, historical leather tooling, precious metal casting, precise heat treatment of each blade to fully functional and rigorous standards, as well as a variety of other historic techniques. Shortcuts are never an option for me, as I strive for the highest quality I can possibly attain.

I use either 1075 or 1085 high carbon steel for my mono-steel blades and a 1075/L6 contrast for my damascus pattern-welded blades. I use a huge variety of beautiful hardwoods for grips and scabbards. Hilt components such as crossbars and pommels are typically forged out of low carbon steel, wrought iron, or a variety of bronze alloys or brass.

I do not accept custom orders for swords, however I am continually crafting blades of my own original designs. So if you’d like to own a piece from me and if you’d like to be notified when I have new blades for sale then please subscribe to my mailing list. By doing so you’ll receive updates as soon as pieces are made available.

Please note that all of the swords shown on this page are past custom-made one of a kind swords. They are past works and are no longer available for sale as I dont make exact duplicates of past works.
