One of the most basic weapons from Elder Scrolls is the Steel Longsword. The guards all use it and it can be easily recognized. I figured I could make one.
I figured I could eyeball this one and not use a template, the design is simple enough. I cut some metal to use for the blade and went from there.
After cutting the metal, it was just a lot of grinding to get the correct shape.
Another piece of a car axle will make a great handle.
