Artist's Description

Traditionally in almost every culture the craft of sword making was divided at a very early date. An Iron master made the steel. The cutler forged, ground and heat treated the blade. Later these were each specialized tasks further dividing the labour to blade smith, grinder and heat treater. The “hilt smith” made the furniture and the grip. A scabard maker made the scabard. A presentation piece would probably go to an engraver or jeweller to have more decoration added. As many as eight separate craftsmen and an untold number of helpers may have worked on a single sword.

Today, due to economics, most makers do it ALL. This means that they must be skilled in many crafts.
