The Walloon Sword is by David Baker's own account, one of the coolest swords in history!

This project was both extremely challenging and incredibly rewarding. As my first completed sword EVER, I had to learn as I went with little to no room for error. I had 4 days at my home shop to get this sword done and ready for the brutal testing the judges put it through. 

 

Sword Parameters:

- Blade length of 31"-33"

- Fuller running at least 2/3 of the blade

- Perforated clamshell guard 

- Knuckle Bow

- Upswept Rear Quillion

- Thumb Ring

- Pommel
