Nemhain's Machete by MisterGone42 Nemhain's Machete by MisterGone42
Thank you for all the wonderful comments and thank you for the Daily Devotion! It's amazing the number of nice comments this piece has been getting just today. If anyone is interested in more info please just check out Strangeblood Designs at www.facebook.com/pages/Strange… or Strangeblood Designs Etsy page over at www.etsy.com/shop/Strangeblood…


This sword is named after Nemhain, the Irish spirit of the frenzied havoc of war, who was invoked in one story by Cú Chulainn to help him confound and slaughter the enemy.
Its has been made from A400 steel and shaped into a wicked angled blade which has been seemlessly joined to a intricately hand carved ebony handle. The handle was then brushed with multiple coats of tung oil giving it a gorgeous 'wet wood' look.

The blade measures 21" and overlaps the handle which, even with its unique carving, fits naturally into your hands which at 13" allows for a one or two handed grip.

Really cool blade, but the handle seems... weird on the grip. Does it handle well?

The blade design is gorgeous but I can't shake the feeling that the grip could be improved.
How well does it handle?
