Cold vengeance by ChardwolfArmory Cold vengeance by ChardwolfArmory
One of the larger pieces i have been working on for standard action (Canadian webseries)

Materials: Aluminum and oak

Process:
1: cut out with a jewelers saw
2: Used our fordome (AKA an industrial verson of a dremel) to carve out the dragon head
3: angle grinder with a flapper wheel the "blade" edges
4: polished parts and blade with sandpaper
5: riveted ornaments on the wing section
6: made pole holder on a lathe
7: cut out groove for blade in pole holder
8: used industrial brake to insert blade into pole holder.

This piece is held together by pressure, it will actually hold better together against damage better then welds with how it was designed and manufactured. the only rivets i used were on the ornamental pieces which say "cold vengence"

Reminds me a bit of Kingdom Hearts. Long story short, there's a character who uses weapons very similar to this. I actually thought that's what this was at first, but just because I had that on my mind. So you made this yourself? Very cool!

Yep made by hand, mostly hand tools. I would be interested in seeing the weapon you were talking about, i tried looking it up but after 200 pics i gave up.

The character's name is Xaldin, if that helps.

It reminds me of a Renaissance-era chauve-souris polearm, but with the dragon head in place of the central blade. Very nice!

Thank you, i was just trying to design a weapon that looked like it could become a live creature, but was DEFINITELY more a weapon.

I could imagine.  But the finished product is absolutely superb.  I'm assuming you've got lots and lots of experience to make it look like that.  Even if it took hours.

Thanks. It is actually an incredible inefficient weapon, it would be decent in defense, but hard to do any damage with
