Oakeshott XVIIIb - Bloodwood Ring Pommel Sword

I'm finishing up this sword for a customer in the coming week.
By far one of the most enjoyable commission projects I've ever worked on to date. Really love the design as specified by the customer, and really love the theme and aesthetic behind it, which will soon be clear once sword & scabbard are finished.
When finished it will have hand engraved french words in the blade, and will have medieval knotwork carved into the grip & scabbard.
