Is it just me, or does this sword resemble the Blurite Sword that you can get by completing The Knight's Sword quest on RuneScape? I just noticed this thread and you are coming along rather well. Keep up the good work!
P.S.-- I'm interested in getting into swordmaking myself one day. Being a rookie when it comes to sword lingo (like different names for diferent parts, all the different metals and grades of these metals that are used in making swords, etc., etc.), I would appreciate all the help and information I can get so I know what to do once I start. Thanks in advance for answering!
