Leaf Blade by *LongshipArmoury is a fantastic sword with a minimalistic and functional design, beautifully finished with a lovely etching. This is definitely not a toy! ( Suggested by xlntwtch and Featured by Talty )

That looks really cool. Almost looks like a long roman gladius.

Most of our swords are made out of 5160H. If you're just making a decorative sword, you probably don't need to use carbon steel for it, since you wouldn't have any need to heat treat for use. Just get a piece of aluminum and make it out of that.

Thank you! Sorry, one more question, how would you advise I shape it, if I do indeed end up using aluminum, as the grinder would become clogged with the particles?

Should be fine with a large enough grinder with a closed motor. Change the belt if it's not fresh enough. Maybe set up a dust collector or a big bucket of water to collect any particles. If you have a really steady hand and few tools, I suppose you could try an angle grinder.

This is the exact sword I've been having dreams of. I've wanted that type of leaf blade, with that type of hilt, and it is freaking impossible to find. Wish i could buy one.
