These sculptures have been sold, given away, lost, or have disappeared from my sight in some other manner.
"Nyamakala #14: Afro-Viking Short Sword"
bloom iron, bloom steel, osage orange, mild steel base
Unlike most of the other sculptural swords, this one is actually hardened, tempered, and sharpened. It is a result of my experiments in the construction methods of early viking era swords, which you can read about over on the Smelting Research page ("A Different Method for Forging Sword Fullers).
