Post subject:  Single Edge Swords!!!

So I have the desire to build a single edge blue sword (maybe a red we'll see), but I need inspiration! I want to go off of the Grosse Messer Image

but I want to know first if this is a doable build, and then second I want to see what other people are doing too!

So send me some shots of single edged swords you have made :D

I don't personally own any single edges weapons, but it is doable. You simply build the sword with only one side padded for striking. You'll get a somewhat lighter and thinner weapon, but you will lose some shot selection. If you find it aesthetically pleasing, however, and can make it work, go for it.

To get a bit creative, you can try bending PVC and making khopesh or something of the like.

One of out guys made some nice single edge swords. But we failed them because they passed right through template. Make sure you pad up that one strike edge so the same doesn't happen. Luck on the foam smithing.

Is old thread i know, but I finished construction on these, and this was an appropriate thread.

though they are more edge and a half swords as the back near the tip is striking surface as well for wrap shots.

Originally were going to be cleavers, but evolved into more sabres/backswords
