1,300 layer damascus type XIII sword. (Hand and a half)

Forged from 1,300 layers of 1095 and 15n20 damascus, this is my adaptationista type 13 sword. The type XIII combined the versatility of the hand and a half sword, with the devastating cutting power of the broadsword. 

Most examples of the type 13 featured a rounded or spatulate tip. For my rendition, I decided to add a slight medial ridge at the last few inches for reinforcement. 

The sword features a 29.5”  blade, with a slight distal taper and fuller. The  leather clad and bound handle is 6” in length, adorned with a hammer finished cross guard and pommel, putting its overall length at a very manageable 37”.

This has been a labor of love for me for the past few weeks, and I’ve had an absolute amazing time forging this blade.
