Mastercrafted Feline Steel Sword (poziom IV).
The Cat’s school is one of the three schools mentioned in Andrzej Sapkowski’s books. Its location is unknown and – like the other ones – it’s also not active anymore. The Witchers of this school were spies, mercenaries and assassins, many were even psychopaths, who relished in killing people (Season of Storms).
The sword has been forged from 50 HF spring steel and hardened The crossguard has been made with carbon steel soldered with brass. Parts o the grip and blade are made from surgical steel S300. The grip is covered in genuine leather. This unusual blade has historical source.
My experiments concluded that this shape does very well with cutting soft materials, e.g. flesh, but doesn’t work for stiffer things, such as tanned leather.
Depending on your preference the sword can be made in III versions:
1. A battle sword – historical POB and sharp edges. 55 HRC.
2. A training sword – thicker edges (2-2,5 mm) and POB closer to the crossguard.50 HRC.
3. Dulled – 1mm edges. The sword is not subject to some of the law restrictions in some countries. The edges can be sharpened, the HRC can be adjusted to the buyers preference.
