I've just recently begun this art. And I have made probably a dozen short blades, most with antler handles. I've given some of the nicer ones to friends as gifts, and I managed to sell a few. I'm currently working on a short sword that'll be about 32 inches and have a rough weight of 7-8 pounds.
I made a bastard sword some years ago that was 46 inches long and ran 5 1/2 pounds. But this was an elementary project and I am hoping that my new works will be more artful as well as fully functional.
