Guard Pommel and Scabbard Chape: Antiqued & Carved Steel
Grip Rings and Scabbard Bridge/Bead: Cast Silver
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.
I MADE A GHIRAHIM PLUSH FOR MYSELF BECAUSE I’M TRASH AND I WANTED IT aND NOBODY CAN STOP ME
It’s not completely finished, the gigantic earring is temporary until I can find a more accurate one, and I haven’t found a decent gem for his sash either. Also I might redo the hair because it’s a little shorter than I wanted it. <_____>
He is 11.5″ tall, made of minky, fleece, and poly satin
ALSO I’M PROBABLY GOING TO MAKE ANOTHER ONE IN HIS BLACK AND RED HYRULE WARRIORS OUTFIT AT SOME POINT ToO BCAUSE JFHJKF
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.
I made some great progress on the unnamed seax this weekend. The hilt fittings are tight and level and the blade feels solid. I still need to make the helmet and do a lot of inlay work but the progress is happening quickly. I am ready to heat treat the blade but I probably won’t until next weekend when I have a lot more time on my hands.
