One of the readers here made me a sword. When I say he made it I mean he did it the way it was done for millenniums. He took a bar of steel and created a blade. It is a beautiful piece of work.
Holding Sword I was struck by how up close and personal warfare was for so many years. This is a gladius or Roman short sword. This pattern, with minor changes, was the weapon of choice for the Greeks, Celts, and Romans. I find it amazing to think a Greek of Homers time would find this weapon very familiar. So would a Roman legionnaire. For at least a thousand years this was the weapon that built or destroyed empires.
Wes does other work too. He might even make a sword or dagger for you.
