Hey guys! I've got a piece that I completed a few weeks ago and I'm ready for it to find it's new home! I used the blade from an RK messer, and mounted it on the Reislaufer complex hilt and pommel from The Printed Armoury. The royal purple grip has a spiral filed into it to enhance grip as well as flow aesthetically with the twisted theme of the fittings. The specs on this bad boy are:
Overall Length- 44.5 in. Blade Length- 33.75 in. Grip Length- 8.25 in. 10 in. if pommel is used P.o.B.- 4.5 in. from guard P.o.P.- 7.5 in. from tip Weight- 3 lbs.
If you would like to make this piece your own, just let me know in the comments below or shoot me a message and we'll discuss the details! I'm asking $500 and whatever shipping will be to your location. International shipping is an option as well. Thanks guys! Enjoy. My pics were taken late last night, on the 2nd of December, 2019.
2 questions...the handle is leather correct, not just wood? Is it peened?
Its leather... and looking far more purple in the FB pictures. Did you change the color, Jimbo? The pommel should be peened; the "Reislaeuffer" pommel from Printed Armory doesnt have hex nut or screw. At least thats how its made on our Cold Steel hybrid from Jim.

Hey thanks guys, yes it is peened and the grip is 2.5 oz deerskin dyed deep purple. And I didnt change the color, I changed the wrap. The leather I used originally didn't absorb the dye like I thought it would so I had to rewrap it. I'm glad I did because it came out much better than I expected it to.

christain: Considering I'm wiping my a** with paper kitchen towels and drinking hard liquor because there's NO BEER...I'm doin' great! I can remember when having a case of Corona meant for a good weekend at the lake.
