The Swords of Night and Day

Wielded by Skilgannon The Damned in David Gemmell's Novels: White Wolf and The Swords of Night and Day.

Shown here with a leather bound ash scabbard, Ivory Micarta grips and lightly blackened and highlighted silver fittings.
The blades on this pair of Night and Day are undecorated but we are also making them with silver and gold inlaid runic inscriptions.

We have spent much of the past year refining the detail on the fittings for both the swords and scabbard.

The hanger is in blackened silver, the ring is blackened steel.

 

This is a numbered Limited Edition of only Fifty sets of The Swords of Night and Day.

Each set of swords and scabbard has over two pounds of Sterling Silver in the fittings.
These swords are hand made and various options are available for the engravings and materials.
We are also offering a rendition of these swords with a leather bound ash scabbard and silvered bronze fittings.
Please for further details on prices, waiting times and payment plans.

This is a close-up of the lock on the prototype Sword of Night.
The Ruby stud on top of the hilt retracts the steel teeth that lock the blade into the Ebony Scabbard.

Each sword has two cabochon trillion gemstones set into the hilt, Rubies for Night and Emeralds for Day.
The grips are made in Ivory Micarta, the fittings for the scabbard and the swords are Sterling Silver.
We will also be offering a small number of these swords with grips carved in Mammoth Ivory.

The fullers are engraved with runes, inlaid in gold for Day and silver for Night.

We began prototyping these Swords six years ago.

I discussed many of the details with David to establish the style of blade and also the length so that the swords could be drawn.
