Item No. 1 is a GORGEOUS pattern welded "Pillow" sword (these were called this cause these were supposedly hung by your pillows while you slept..whether this is true or not... this sword is still just too beautiful for words..). The  21 1/4" long, 1  1/4" wide double edged blade is welded from 1095, L-6 and meteoric iron. It is in a very tight and undulating "Ladder Pattern".

The double edged blade has a single 4/5th blade length fuller on each side and shows great contrast and patterning. Simply breathtaking. This is one of the nicest pattern welded blades I have made...It shows  great chatoyancey  and simply has to be seen ...

The grip is..well, the grip is unique (well at least for me it is..) in the fact that it is made from bowling ball material that I scrounged a while back. Oh geeze this stuff is just totally bizarre and I can not describe it. It shows a depth of finish and so many colour variations that it is just mind blowing. It looks like a cross between Gold Tigerseye and Baltic amber. The photo does not show "the depth" to the finish. This material is simply..well, it is just unreal...Almost "other worldly"..

The hand forged phosphor bronze mounts are file worked and seems to "pull" the whole sword "together". The grip is hand fluted, and very comfortable to hold and quite "secure" in the hand.  These photos do NOT do this blade justice at all.

The leather sheath has a bronze chape and locket, and the throat is set with a 33.10 Ct  100% natural Star Ruby (I cut this one myself from the rough) which shows a very nice star under direct light. This whole sword just simply "works"... Elegant yet deadly...This one is just marvelous...

The leather sheath is dark Oxblood Red and makes a very "bold" visual statement indeed!! This is one shortsword has to be seen to be believed!!!! Feels solid and fast in the hand and gives great point! Beautiful, fast and deadly..how can one beat that!??!

This is simply a remarkable sword to say the least. OAL 27 1/4". Priced way below what it should be..but what the Hell...
