Making an all-steel Raider sword this time...
« on: August 23, 2018, 08:34:04 PM »
Hi guys,

Some people liked my Dragonslayer I made a few years ago. I got a customer commission for a 75% scale Raider sword (golden age arc of course) so here she is at 63" and 24lbs. Yes, the blade should be slightly tapered but this was a budget build so that was the one thing that helped the customer's wallet. The customer wanted it to be "functional", hence the scaled down appearance. It's still pretty big and pretty heavy but quite balanced and usable. I shot a video smashing a ton of free craigslist furniture and it worked great.

For now, here's some pics:

...and the first part of the build video. I'm working on editing the second part and then the smash video.

I'll post a video smashing some craigslist furniture once I'm done editing the footage.

Good work dude!
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.
