Sword and Dagger are made of same materials. Handle is made in zinc 24kt gold plated, and blade is in steelI'm tempted by the grail sword (who wouldn't be) as I mull my decision over, can I ask what the blade is made of and some details of the tang? I understand the handle is plated but plated on what? I'm just trying to work out if it's usable or a 'wall hanger' (I hate that phrase)
thanks for for the info, and is the dagger made using the same process?
Thanks for your wordsSo I'm presuming the handle is cast, preened onto the tang and the blade is stainless or mild but polished? I'm not trying to be rude so please don't think I am, I do fight with swords and just wanted to be sure what the swords made of. You make beautiful stuff, I've seen it frequently and I'd love to, and will I'm sure buy something one day if not this. If it's usable, I would deffo stretch to it, if it's not, I may consider only because right now I'm thinking about commissioning something from a blacksmith in the uk and I can't get both (funds and all that). Thank you for the answers, you make amazing stuff.........
I am curious to see the excel file eheheh!Here is a picture of my sword (scabbard was included, plaque is made by another member):

The handle was a bit too shiny to my taste, so I gave it a quick wash with gold + black acrylic paint. I was quite happy with the result:

Didn't had time to hang the plaque and sword to a wall in my new home. The plaque was a piece of art on its own and was made by indianaandrews especially for this sword. This was back in 2011 when Seradnab did the first run of these (Yeah, I keep the history of my props in an Excel file ;-).
