How to create your own sword
At the bottom left of the screen are 5 tabs showing each of the components available. Click on the first tab, blades.
First choose either a brushed or polished blade. All blades are 42" long and made of hand forged high carbon steel. Just click on the desired style.
Choose from our selection of Oakeshoot style guards. Style VI can be chosen plain or engraved for an additional $5. If you choose the engrave-able guard please call Customer Service at 800-883-8838 to have the initials added to your order.
Once you select the guard style it will appear in the design area. You can then slide it into place on the blade. You can select other styles and place them in the design area and move them around as you decide on your final design. Any components you do not wish to use can be removed by clicking on that component and clicking "delete" at the top of the screen.
Select a grip style. Each style is leather wrapped wood and available in either brown or black. They are secured into place with a 2 part epoxy. Then choose your pommel (peened in place, not screwed like most mass produced swords) and scabbard if desired. Scabbards are suede with metal furniture.
If you want the sword to arrive sharpened for an additional $18 check the "sharpen" box. We can engrave 3 initials on the blade in Prince Valiant font for an additional $5.00; just enter the information on the box to the right. (If you wish more than 3 initials please call customer service at 800-883-8838.) The total price will appear in the upper right hand corner. Once you have all the desired components on the screen click "lock parts" at the upper left and then click the shopping cart icon to purchase the custom sword you designed. A parts list will pop up so you can confirm the components you have chosen. Then you can "add to cart" or "cancel" and continue with your design.
