Ever since I started getting into blacksmithing I've been asked about making swords. Both from friends who wanted a big chopping sword to all of you guys who want a nice blunt one for swallowing. Well, the time has come and here's the back story;

Dan Meyer contacted me at the beginning of the year as he was requesting a 10 sword stack for me to make. I tried to tell him I'm not ready for swords yet, but he was pretty persistent. Making swords is one of those (many) things I procrastinated about, so it was time to get off my biblical donkey and just do it. I bought a plate of stainless steel only to realize that it was too thick for 10 swords to fit, so I had to buy another sheet of steel only thinner. Problem was that the sheet offered was twice the size of the original plate. After having all the material from both pieces cut at a waterjet facility, I now have over 50 sword blanks!

These ten are for Dan.

My hand in the shot for perspective reference, this one is partially finished blank (round tip, smoothing edges, etc.)

The dimension of the blanks are 24-1/2" long, 3/4" to a long taper down to 1/2" width. Thick ones are 0.10" 316L stainless, thinner ones are all 0.075" 304 stainless. The "L" means low carbon, since the thinner ones can bend easier, I use tougher stainless. 304 is used in commercial kitchens and food grade tankers, so it is good to be in your esophagus. Handles will be either TIG welded or brazed with special stainless flux and filler. This is just the beginning of the sword making process. I am ready to take orders, requests will be filled in the order that they are received. PM's are cool, but I prefer e-mail request to Nippulini(at)aol.com

Questions? Suggestions?

Thank you,
TGN

Yeah, I'm not much of a carpet man really.


Those floorboards are about 250 years old.

I love carpet. Are we talking about floors? Right, just saw the word floorboard. Please disregard my statement for being off topic.

Carpeted armpits? Does one need a rug-shampooer to get them clean?

Okay, what does any of this have to do with the world's best swords for swallowing?
Besides the fact that the carpet/floor thing was an intentional double entendre?

Hehehe

Nothing...it looks like I started with the sexy, you added the carpet entendre, Rotton made it unmistakably sexual, Brett piped in about hippie hair, Harley tried to clean it up, and Brett n' I closed it off with the dirty.

You brought it back home. Smile

SOOOOOOO......

Order NOW! Nipps Swords! 'The World's Best for Swallowing'!!!!!

Better? Smile

Since Aye Jaye has been brought up...Now that I know him, he pops up all over the place.
He was in the audience for the world magic awards and I saw him earlier this week on the show "1000 Ways to Die" as a man who was put to death by lethal injection gone wrong. Then about a month ago I was doing a murder mystery and there was a magician in the audience who kept going on and on about his buddy Aye Jaye...Winds up he was a former Ronald back in the early 70's.
The man travels...
