    The first thing I did today was cut out the blank for the portepee from gold paper...

    [IMG]

    ... then the saber, tassel and portepee were primed ...:

    With the painting I started with the most difficult part, namely the Portepee!

    Honestly, there were things that were more fun to paint - to say it this way ...!

    The result, however, corresponds - which in turn makes me happy! - in color of both the original ...

    ... as well as the ribbon that our "Petro" wears on the chest ...:

    The second hand is painted - unfortunately still shines quite a bit.

    The hardest thing was actually to find the right color again!

    But the hands match in color ...:

    The paradise for rivet counters like me!

    First of all I refined the tassel a little bit today ...

    ... and then the small homemade plaque on the saber handle ...

    ...painted...:

    After drying, the red parts were coated with "Gloss Varnish" ...:

    I decided to do a little conversion on the home straight:

    The saber blade ...

    [IMG]

    ... I sanded down and removed the "blood channel".

    You can do that without hesitation, because not every shashka had such a gutter, as the following pictures show ...:

    On the handle I was a bit too brisk when grinding - but this is still being repaired ...:

    [IMG]

    [IMG]

    Why did I do this ...?

    "Petros" saber will get an inscription on the blade - something like this ...:

    [IMG]

    Next week!

    Hi Martin

    I exoected to see the blade painted today but no !!!.....

    " A bit of a conversion " ......a understatement !!

    All credit to you , I would have left the channel there !! ...but you have good reasoning to do this ...an inscription ....that is impressive ...looking forward to seeing the freehand ....

    What does the inscription say ?

    Have a great weekend

    Happy benchtime

    Why simple, if it can be cumbersome ...?

    I decided to rebuild "Petros" saber blade based on this Caucasian model ...

    [IMG]

    ... and then add an inscription on it - something like this ...:

    [IMG]

    The first page is almost finished (I only have to grind the cutting edge in the lower area ...:

    Hi Martin

    Everyday something different and special

    I would have painted the lettering ...or at least hinted at them...lol ....you have used putty !

    Don't sharpen the cutting edge too much

    Final grinding orgy on the saber blade - then I carefully packed the finished hand and primed the saber together with the revised tassel ...:

    The advice of a friend two days ago, who thought my new saber blade was too short, could not let go of me!

    So today I sat down and made an alternative saber blade - it was modeled on "Milliput" on a 1 mm sheet.

    As I said, there was an abundance of different blade shapes in the Caucasus, my first one can be compared to this one ...:

    [IMG]

    The alternative now has significantly less bending, is much narrower and longer, like this one ...

    [IMG]

    ... of course also has an inscription on the front - and overall looks much more elegant!

    Here is a comparison of the two pieces ...:

    [IMG]

    [IMG]

    I think I'll use the new alternative ...

    Hi Martin

    Your friend was right , comparing the 2 together ..the first looks like a cutlass sized blade

    I feel your pain ! ....keep at it
