My first sword, made out of a property stake I found outside. The Elvish "inscription" is the same as that found on Aragorn's hunting knife, from the Lord of the Rings movies.

The black accents are real leather (got it at the craft store). It took me about 3 days to complete the whole thing. If only it made that sssszzzing! sound when drawn....

made this knife for my little brother about the same time I made the sword.
