looks bein g made from wood stock thats wasn't treated or the best quality its not gona last to much in a spar though back then sparing swords only saw about a weeks worth of work before they were decommissioned...aka set on fire
Ah, well good luck on that. I've already done a lot of reading, and I have two methods of making swords when I start. I seem to have a natural talent with metalwork. Then again, I'm good with my hands when I make anything as long as I have the right tools. Just have fun with it, take your time, and make sure you read up on the specific metals you use. If you want to learn some more information on specifics, try going here:
Yeah, maybe. I wouldn't suggest quitting your job for it though, because you'll need to practice on your own for a while before you can start making them professionally, and that means you'll need to buy the materials you need. What I'm doing is starting it out as a hobby, and then I'll move it up to a side job after I get better.
Another thing you'll want to do, is learn how to make a good website to display and sell your work. That might mean taking some classes on web page design or something, if you haven't already. You'll want to do this because the chances of you selling your work are pretty slim if you have an unprofessional or amateur website. If it's neat and well-kept, then you should have a better success.
