We've featured reproductions of the Ebony Dagger from Skyrim by Ellana333 and Arsynal Props. Crafting those in resin is cool, but you know what's even more impressive? Actually forging an Ebony Dagger out of red hot steel, like ThresholdSeven did:
I'm a bladesmith and was inspired to recreate the Ebony Dagger. It is made with high carbon leaf spring steel, mild steel guard and pommel and has a Hickory handle. The blade is quench hardened, has a through tang and is finished with blackened linseed oil. Still need to take it to the old grinding wheel for sharpening.
