Sword Geek Moment
To my fellow Science Fiction geeks and devotees of the blade:
Famed swordmaker Jody Sampson is working on a replica of the Martian longsword from the old Frank Frazetta cover paintings of the Edgar Rice Burroughs Mars books.
The link shows a work-in-progress. The guard and pommel, which is blue in the mock-up, will be bronze.
