Truly custom, a one-of-a-kind hand-made short sword by Aaroneous Blades. This big bruiser is ground from carbon steel and is built like a tank! The long tanto blade with reinforced tip grind and upper swedge features a convex zero-grind on the main edge and tip bevel. The blade features a hand finished patina with copper infused elements, matte and satin-finished and heavy grinds for a killer 'ancient civilization' vibe. The blade flows into a full tang for absolute strength from end to end. The grip has been formed from molten copper surrounding the tang, and Aaroneous forged a 'wrap' with copper bar stock around the core! The bars wrap around the butt end to provide extra grip, and wrap to the end to come together and form a guard between the different bars. These bards have been pinned in place with bronze pins. The entire handle has been given a relic patina finish to match the overall style. The extra weight of the copper handle is well balanced right at the guard.
