You know I make props, too?

Yeah, it’s not always about the sharp cutting implements of doom, I also make theatrical props. It’s actually how I got interested in bladesmithing; I was grinding away on stage combat weapons in the workshop one day about 2 decades ago and said “I want to learn how they really made this stuff” and it all went downhill from there! Getting back on track, yesterday I put the finishing touches on these two 32″ broadswords.

Today I finished up a set of throwers bound for the deepest darkest Peru. I’ve a friend who’s currently working for La Tarumba Gala who needed a set for a new show he’ll be performing later this year. Here’s a quick look at these new theatrical props.
