Another sword done on request. This is an 1840 U.S. heavy cavalry saber. The blade metal came out nicely, no? Used an environment map and added a very slight bump map to it. It looks a little bit odd right near the guard, but overall much better than previous attempts.
I'd never seen a sword that had this style before. The blade has a large but shallow fuller in the center of the face on the first half, and a narrow but much deeper fuller along the spine for the second half. But my source pictures were fairly clear that this was correct. An elegant weapon overall.
