Celtic Wolf by LongshipArmoury Celtic Wolf by LongshipArmoury
Haven't posted anything in a while, so here's an old piece of work, the Celtic Wolf. It's the original upon which the current Morrigan is based. Some of you might've seen it floating around the web before ;)

What is that inscribed on the blade? 

This is a beautiful piece of steel.

This is so cool, I could see this as a high level quest reward in an Elder Scrolls game. It is beautiful.

Wish I could have it so bad.
Made any scabbard yet?

We'll make the occasional scabbard but usually send swords off to a 3rd party scabbard maker that can dedicate more time to it.

Looks very similar to another blade found here: sbg-sword-forum.forums.net/thr… Not that I'm accusing you of theft or anything. Just thought it was an interesting coincidence. Great minds think alike I suppose.

I really admit your metalworks! :) Say, do you make these swords modern ways, or do some traditional stuff, like hammering it on an anvil?

Very nice design, particularly the darkness of the blade, which shows off the blood groove well.

... Do you mean the fuller? There's no such thing as a "blood groove".

Stunning sword! Is it battle-ready? Does it have a scabbard?

How much would one of these cost?

This was a custom made piece. To do something similar today, we'd probably have to be around $4,500. Scabbard is not included.

The curve to the blade reminds me of Glamdring from Lord of the Rings. I like it. :)

can u really make a sword out of obsidian? Is there such a thing as black metal?

I saw a blacksmith-armorer use a dye that "activated" when he heat treated the sword. You can check it out on youtube, just write "man at arms sokka's sword". The dye doesn't make it really dark but you can still slightly alter the colour with chemicals dyes and other options. But LongshipArmoury is right otherwise :)

Not really. I guess you could let it rust, but that kind of defeats the purpose.

Wouldn't be able to do it exactly to keep some uniqueness for the original, but something similar with a pattern-welded damascus blade, hand-carved fittings, and etchings on the blade would run around $4500.

Is this the blades natural color? or did you paint it? looks freakin sweet!

That's what this particular piece of pattern-welded damascus looked like after acid etching it to bring out the natural pattern.

Beautiful, beautiful sword. I love how the blade is tight near the handle but broadens, and then things, and broadens again, It's got a slight hint of fantasy but still feels just as powerful as any of the most classic swords.

Not to mention the cool color of the blade.

I believe the blade was around 32.5" and the total was probably around 43".

It's damascus/pattern welded steel. It's just different kinds of steel welded together in a pattern and then acid-etched to bring it out.
