Feels heavy, really heavy which is somewhat to expect as the blade is as wide as my hand... luckily I've shortened it, it is now 70 centimeters long, otherwise that would have felt like weaving around a sharpened club Cheesy

The other sword I'm planning to build have a one meter blade and its pommel and hilt will be of cast bronze... still the blade is thinner than this one and already extremely well balanced as it's damascus; that should turn out more manoeuverable than this one.

Thanks for the comments guys, I'm glad u liked it Cheesy
