There are many quality sword manufacturers out there today; however, a swordsmith who pours his heart, soul, and spirit into each individual sword is rarely found. I not only forge weapons, but I design unique, one-of-a-kind pieces of art. I handcraft each sword using the most traditional methods whenever possible. Methods include hand forging the blades and hilt components with hammer and anvil, damascus/pattern welding steel, intricate wood carvings on grips and scabbards, precise heat treatment of each blade, and a variety of other historic techniques. Shortcuts are never an option as I strive for the highest quality attainable.
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 or iron.
***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 not available for sale as I dont make exact duplicates of past works. However you can contact me at CedarloreForge@gmail.com to discuss the possibility of any new custom work you’d be interested in!***
