Integral handled hunting sword

Finally finished this up. Added more red ink to the handle, gave it more layers of clear shellac, and put something of an edge on it. Not as sharp as I typically do; unlike most of my other work, this is more of an art piece, and I'd rather not have accidental cuts happen while it's on display.

A closeup showing that the handle is indeed an integral socket:

And showing the full length of the handle. That's a plug of pecan wood on the end, sealled with black shellac.

I gave it to my brother in appreciation for his help through the years. He seemed to really like it!
