Handmade Swords - Telpënár - the Silver Fire

Telpënár, literal meaning “Silver Fire” in Tolkien’s “Quenya” language, is a High-Elven leaf-bladed longsword crafted by David DelaGardelle. He forged and ground the blade out of a piece of “feather”  pattern-welded steel that came from my friends at HHH Knives, who are talented smiths who produce near mythic-looking “damascus” patterns in steel.

Order a sword built specifically for you. From initial design of concept through the fire and final handle assembly watch your sword come to life. Scabbard included with purchase and will vary on materials and decoration. I will start with a concept illustration based off of requested time period and other considerations. Then I will make a schematic and start the build. I blog my progress as I go so you can follow along with me. Timeline says 9-10 weeks but it can take longer depending on what is decided on.
*note: swords displayed are my creations, however items pictured are from previous builds and are not for sale.

Also, I just released some new pricing options for various lengths. Give it a look.


*Must be 18 years of age or older to purchase.

These are my collective sewing results for the past two or so weeks.

Many hours sat at the machine. Much pattern designing, cutting, cursing and creating!

All my pillows are for sale and are available on commission. Prices vary, please ask me for further details!

(Oh and for the record. That background there is my bedroom wall. It’s a waterfall mural with hidden Pokemon in it that I painted when I had left high school. I was 15 at the time and it took me about two weeks to paint!)
