1812 Militia Saber. The owner has had it since he was a child. Found it in his basement and it has never had a handle since he has owned it. I made it a handle out of bone. Had to draw out the tang, polish the brass, and remove the rust form blade without stripping the wonderful patina. Lastly cleaned up the ragged edge so it is a functional sword again. It was not a museum quality piece or restoration but the owner now has a fine, fully functional sword that makes a nice mantle piece. He can take it to water melons or keep it for home defense.
