Ahoi my steampunky buddäys.
My plan was to keep it steampunky, brass, copper, not much color BUT....the client wanted "red wherever you can".
When it was done he was agreeing...steampunk would have been better. Still looks steampunky enough to post it here I think.
My first sword. Guess I will make a second much steamier version someday! Let me know what you think.

Brilliant! I would never have thought of turning a sword Steampunk - it works beautifully.

Thanks guys.
Guess you can steampunk almost anything. I just wish (just like him NOW) the client would have listened to me and
kept it a bit more subtle..aka minus red plus grey.

Maye a little 'Flash Gordon' meets Steampunk? Still, they work very nicely.

Yours,

Why not? I like this build. Does it have a "backstory"?

It looks a bit like a video game prop. What do the electronics do? Vibrate the blade like a cyberpunk assassin's knife?

I like the looks of it.

Handle design have some similarities with the giant killing swords, what they used in Shingeki no kyojin manga & anime series.

There is not really a backstory, client wanted a raygun plus matching sword, the barrel of the gun looks
much like that bladeholder part on the sword.
Regarding electronics, just LEDs. Flickering yellow for the center, red for the tubes.
Design is mine, client insisted on some Attack on Titan similarities like the brake, and insisted on the candy red.

The brake is an interesting edition; used on motorcycles. A stock Harley Davidson throttle of similar appearance was used as a rocket belt controller by Bell Aerospace.

Its on a sword used in attack on titan, I wanted to make something handguard-styled, maybe with some spikes around it.
The handbrake does not look too bad though I have to admit.

I think the color scheme works pretty well. If he's doing cosplay or going to a con, he may want his gear to be noticed, to have the WOW factor. The design itself does that, and then red just grabs you.  Whole thing look great; l like it.

Thanks.
The red is just a bit too iron-manish. Usually I use that stuff for iron man stuff only...guess its just in my head :p

He still ma have to carry it somehow.
He could use a hanger/frog setup. That way the sword wouldn't be hidden at all.

The red sword "support" would be an issue. But a scabbard that reproduces the aesthetic of the AoT styled blade is possible and may be necessary to walk in public spaces. I ignore if the client is the kind of person to attend public venues such as conventions...

The thing is that nowadays, carrying blades into public spaces is difficult. Never mind riding public transport. Even in weapons-friendly Texas, where openly carrying a full-size fuctional sword is legal, in private venues they may forbid the entrance of the weapon. For example, in the Austin Convention Centre, at the SXSW Gaming Expo 2 weeks ago - You can go into the lobby by State Law, openly carrying a sword (no permit required) or a gun (permit required), but once you walk into a expo room or arena, they'll have airport styled security and bag checks with metal detectors, and they'll take away both. I had to leave my trusty switchblade back home this time.
