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.
My son the pirate with the sword I made him. He carries it around every day and goes to sleep with it at the foot of his bed #pirateslifeforme. I originally designed it as a little spartan sword. More of these on the way if any one is interested. #handmade #knifemakersarehandy #dadstuff #adventure #explore #explosiventure #sword #woodwork #woodentoys #outdoors #kidstuff #woodensword
The “DeargAbhainn-Cu'ra”, literally meaning “the Red River Guardian” in ancient Gaelic, was forged out of 1075 high carbon steel, figured bloodwood, and mild steel hilt components. The sword was commissioned by its owner to represent the rich cultural heritage of his family lineage, while looking forward to the future as a celebration of 25 years of marriage to his wife.
The owners last name being “Rushing” literally refers to Rush reeds aka “cat tails” that grow by ponds or streams. So the grip is carved with swirling water motif’s and reeds sprouting up among them. The scabbard includes knotwork patterns based off of the owner and his wife’s wedding bands, and in between show the intertwining sun and moon.
Finally last on the scabbard you see the ever growing Tree of truth & life or the family tree. In the blade you read two French sayings engraved on either side. One side reads “One God” and the other reads: “One Faith”. A sword meant to be historically grounded in its execution but completely unique and organic in its aesthetic feel.
The Watchman Son’s Sword is a Fantasy/Gothic piece with some historical inspiration taken from a few different 15th-16th century German Oakeshott Type XVa longswords.
The goal in the finishing work with its textures, materials, and decoration being an exploration in late Medieval ornamentation styles.
The blade is forged and ground from high carbon 1075 steel, lightly antique “blued” and hand surface engraved. The fittings are forge blackened steel, and the grip and scabbard is highly antiqued cherry wood.
