Well, It's been a while, and this isn't Artorias, but after watching The Hobbit I couldn't help but start on this thing.
Sorry about my lack of activity on here, been really busy with school starting up and work and such, but I've been working on stuff when I can.
As for this, been alot of fun so far, as always a learning experience. Ill definitely be going into more detail later when I make my sword making tutorial based on this. But so far the materials used are a board of 1/2" poplar for the blade, 1/4" poplar for the hilt, with some apoxie sculpt for the raised section of the hilt, and one dragon tooth.
