  • 10/19/21 - Sword Research, Model, and unwrap Due Here!

    https://www.darksword-armory.com/med...claymore-1319/
    http://historicalswordszone.com/purp...ord-type-xvia/

    If you choose the Viking sword, include the Scabbard.
    If you choose Purple Prince, include the scabbard.
    If you choose the Claymore, no scabbard required.


    Research must include the following information:
    • If you choose the purple prince: What historical sword is your sword based off of.
    • What era was the sword made?
    • What kind of cross section is the blade?
    • What is the material for the metal?
    • Find reference of materials you'd like to use.

            - Ulfberht Viking Sword

            - The Ulfberht Sword was design around the 9th century and continued until the 11th century.

            - The cross-section is a rectangular stout cross-guard, made by the same steel as the blade.

            - The material for the metal is crucible steel, which was a rare type of metal at the time. Having high carbon than most metals when heated up, it was far stronger and flexible than most swords, making it a revolutionary discovery at the time.
