Spring of 2007
Materials Used: Mildsteel for the quillons and pomel, high carbon steel for the quillon block, random mildly thick leather for washers between hardware, Handle is of ebonized Ash, and the blade is a 45" bated rapier blade from Darkwood Armoury.
Time Involved: didn't keep track - was rushing to get it done for an SCA event during a scant few days where I was between the two big projects for my Printmaking II class.

A couple of pictures of me using this sword in SCA Rapier combat.
