The Sword of Danu has an interesting history behind it.
The designer of the sword, Djinnobi from the SBG Sword Forums, originally envisioned it as a two handed leaf blade, but to me the guard looked to wide and big for a two hander – and in the end we agreed that it would be better off being made as a leaf bladed short sword for the diminutive Tuath.
And so, the original design was submitted to the forge with the following specs.
As the sword started to take shape, I noticed that the hilt was a lot fatter than what I thought it should be, so it was slimmed down somewhat. And so finally, below are a series of pics showing the final form it has taken – and been approved by the designer – to go into the final stages of production.
But overall, it is looking much better – and I am sure once completed it will all come together – the guys at BCI know their stuff, that is for sure..
