Rapier Hilt

So little explaining probly needed here. I do Medeival recreation though a world wide Society(called the SCA) and a rapier fighter of mine asked me to make him a new handle for his sword

Here was the final product, it is Bubinga finished with bees wax. Some problems with making it were the way the blade fits in to the handle made it difficalt as it was almost the same back end of a file but a little bigger so ended up getting a file from a yard sale and super herating that with a torch,
