Nemhain's Machete by MisterGone42 Nemhain's Machete by MisterGone42
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.

Is the handle coated after the tung oil was applied?  Beautiful work.  Blade work is nice but i think the handle is phenomenal.
