Oxtail Saber Bush Sword


Well-Known Member
This is one of my last bush swords to be forged from 5160. It's in the oxtail saber style that makes for a graceful, powerful chopper. The blade is 18" long, with a false edge on the top side.

The handle is an integral socket wrapped in black paracord with two-strand Turk's head knots fore and aft, all impregnated with West System marine epoxy.

The fellow who bought this requested a Kydex sheath, so I built this before shipping it to him.

It takes a lot of rivets to make a Kydex sheath for an 18" blade!
