been a while but thought i had to post my progress on my attempts at a more book accurate version of twinkle and icing death in the past i made drizzts original swords he had in the artwork ( sbg-sword-forum.forums.net/thread/55504/school-drizzt-dourden-build-finished)
said then my skill set was still way off attempting what MOK had designed but im finally catching up with my ambition this is what i have so far since no real description exists for twinkle i winged it and tried for an elven feel, both made from non hardened steel stock (basically display pieces) and not finished yet, twinkle has a "mythral" (aluminum) guard forged into the shape of an oak leaf with a motif of oak leaves winding around the wood handle, a cast metal concho and plastic sapphire round out the piece. icingdeath has a solid adamantine (wood) handle,adamantine (steel and metal putty) guard, (plastic) gems inset in the handle and amber (glass) beads for the eyes,
blade length:85cm/33" 81cm/31"
blade width: 30mm/1.5" 30mm/1.5"
guard width: 15cm/6" 11.5cm/4.5"
handle length: 13.5cm/5.5" 12.5cm/5"
handle width 26mm/1" flare to 40mm/1.5" 40mm/1.5" taper to 255mm/3/4"
curve: both have same curve of 80mm/3inches from table to spine
p.o.b: approximate center of blade
weight: 658grams/23oz 637grams/22.5oz
whilst there not perfect by long stretch im super pleased with them and think the beat any production version for book accuracy including this 200 dollar set of toys www.zingpopculture.com.au/product/collectibles/264580-dungeons-dragons-drizzts-modern-icons-replica-swords
will probably post final finished pics once blades are finished and sharp, might even do a side by side with my original set lol
