Fluted Sword Dagger
Here is a photo of a sword-dagger pair made in the mid 1980s.
The blades are D-2 tool steel, all other sword and scabbard furniture is stainless steel. Both handles and scabbards are wrapped in twisted stainless steel wire. The blades are about .170 inch thick at the double spines. The weight is about 2.0 and 1.0 pounds. This uses the modified Japanese tang style, with steel toggle and pommel screw.
They are signed and numbered on the tang to preserve purity of form. The photo was taken by Jim Weyer.
