Sweet design, it has the right optical balance and size too :)

Be careful while describing it though! All the "it's" you have in this description should be "its". Not trying to be smart -- I just think your awesome creations deserve to get awesome descriptions :salute:

Great sword. I think that the design in the center is very cool and does make me think of a storm, or lightning.

Thank you for your comment. Indeed the motifs in the
center of the blade represent storm clouds. They also 
speak a cryptic message when shadow cast upon a 
wall.

It certainly is beautiful, and ascetically pleasing. But I can imagine that a blade like this would not be very useful in battle.

Although I could easily kill you with this sword, I must admit I did project form
over function to make a thematic statement. So what are you gonna do, tie me
to a whipping post?

I'm not necessarily saying that you couldn't kill with this. But the core of the blade would have a lot less structure in the fuller than other blades. It would seem to have far less uses than another blade with a complete fuller.

And please understand: I'm not at all meaning to bash you. You put your heart in this, and I commend you for that! I'm just sharing my opinion is all. ^^

Hold on a second here...... You're saying theres actual silver and gold in that sword? o.o

Indeed, the entire hilt, handle and pommel are solid Sterling Silver.
The hilt and handle contain twelve 14K Gold studs and the pommel is
topped with a solid 14K Gold nugget. My goal is to make one of a kind
heirloom quality fine metal objects through direct metal sculpture.

O.O HOLY SHHHHH......... Sir, you have yourself a might fine blade! Did it cost much to gather all of that silver together for such a design?

At today's Gold and Silver market, the intrinsic value alone of 
this sword exceeds 10,000 dollars.

Send it to me right after I win my lawsuit against the lottery people for the mental anguish of them always drawing the wrong numbers.

I'll let you borrow the sword to settle the suit for 20 percent of the take.

If you hold this sword against a light to cast it's shadow on a
wall you might perhaps perceive a netherworld reprieve.
