Hafvilsverd was designed by SBG member Celegon and brought to life by up and coming US sword maker, Tomas Diamante.
After it came back from the heat treatment, the hand shaped and polished brass fittings are peened to the tang of the sword for maximum durability.
Overall Length: 42.75in, Blade Length: 32.5in, Weight: 3lbs 4oz, Point of Balance: 3.375in
And it was then – the unexpected occurred – and the project terminated..
Now unfortunately what happened next no one really expected – however due to circumstances beyond his control and health issues in his family, the project with Tomas had to be halted and abandoned for the foreseeable future. He was, however, a man of his word and completed the sword. And while the final sword was not quite exactly what the designer had been hoping for (it was after all, his dream sword) – and we will be trying again with this sword in the future with a different artisan..
So here they are, the final photos of the design that – at least for now, is on indefinite hold.
