New Blade for Nibbles

Hurrah! My bandsaw is up and running again! Not precisely my choice of blade but it was all that was available. Hopefully, they will get the wood/metal bi-metal blades in stock soon.

We’ve got a brand new Azrael just off the saw and ready for first shaping.

We’ve got a fully polished Azrael in a … ugly sweater? Hehe, nope! It’s an old pair of fuzzy socks I bind around the blade to protect it while I fit the leather grip on the handle.

This is just in the initial stages of shaping but I think the diagonal lines really accentuate the sword’s shape.

We also have a HOLY CRAP LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT THING! What’s it called? How long is it? Will it be lit? Engraved?

Well, you’ll just have to wait and see. Stay tuned for more swordy goodness. 😉
