Heron Saber by LongshipArmoury Heron Saber by LongshipArmoury
Sorry for the blurry photo. Low light in the shop thanks to all the snow lately and all. Hard to tell because of the image quality, but the little heron on the grip is 3D and cast in bronze. The bronze inset diamond piece on the scabbard also has a heron etched onto it. There's also a heron etched on the blade, but the pictures of the blade were all too blurry to use. Really need to save up some cash for a huge light box or something

Something along the lines of how I've always imagined Tam's sword. Beautiful.

Perfectly nailed the Wheel of Time sword look, just as I imagined, except i always thought the herons were etched on the blade too, but this still is glorious.

That's exactly what I thought! Not sure if it was the original intent though? So cool!

P.S. Did you take any of the specs of the sword before you shipped it to the customer, and, if so, could you post them please? :)

Didn't take any specs, unfortunately. Was a pretty big guy though.

I like how the pommel is sort of like the dragon's fang! ;) Just how I imagined it in the book! I think this is your best "warder" sword yet! One question: Is the blade double edged near the tip like your fishtail warder, as it seems, from looking at the other pictures that you posted, that there is a central ridge (with a diamond-shaped cross section near the guard) rather than the spine of most single edged blades?

No sharpened false edge on the blade. Also doesn't really have a ridge. That's more of a trick of the lighting. It's a full convex grind.

Unfortunately, the customer already has the sword, so we'd have to see if he takes any pictures to share. Here's a picture of the sword before the heron was etched on the blade. Basically complete though besides that: [link]
