That's so cool. I saw one in a shop in Bristol years ago, but it wasn't flat profiled like yours. The blade had been pattern welded like yours, but around a central rod which was left unhammered. I expect it was a springier temper of steel and the edges were harder to keep an edge. Yours was probably made by a better smith, one who could harden the edges independently after the constituent rods were hammered together.

Yours sounds like it might have been whats referd to as a "tourists" one, made a lot cheaper. This one is meant to be genuine, whcih sounds about right given the blood stains on it and the god awful smell of dead animal on it :D

The guy originally wanted 5000 bob for it!

You may be right. I didn't own it though, I just saw it in a shop I was thinking of buying a deactivated PPSH 41 from. TBH though, it didn't look like something that was made to be a souvenir: the leather on the grip was thicker than on yours and stained from use.

£12 for a hand forged blade is good going I'd say, Nick.

 

Maybe this one I saw was made by a particular smith or something. You know how yours is made from 4 rods pattern welded together? The middle 2 will have been pre-tempered to give the blade resilience and the outer 2 for hardness. But the heat and slow cooling during the hammering of pattern welding must anneal both types, thus must be accounted for in the pre-temper of the centre rods, because afterwards only either the whole blade or a single edge can be tempered again. A 5th rod in the centre would make it far easier to achieve the same result and also, after grinding, act to make the blade easier to withdraw from a stab wound than a flat blade.

- I'm not only old, I'm a sponge for interesting yet ultimately useless, unless civilisation ends and needs to be rebuilt from scratch, information. For eg, traditional English swordsmiths would have used the same method, except that the 2 centre rods of the blade would have been twisted before final spring tempering. Placed side by side, with each twist going the opposite way, once they are hammered together with the blade edge pieces there is a pattern left which looks a little bit like a head of barley, or fish scales even, down the centre. They used to intentionally rust the blade and then heat treat it with some mineral or other, which prevented the rust from getting worse, so when it was polished much of the blade would be dark brown with this shiny pattern running down it...

For a million quid I have no problem cheating and, whatever I did, Chris Tarrant would still be a bigger arsehole. But yeah, my problem would be that I don't know, or want to know, anyone that is an electric valium afficianado...

Bit of unsolicited advice, UTJ - get it shimmed and working without the sorbo pad/s 1st. You might get a problem with the sector gear engaging the piston teeth with the pad/s in and, if you do, at least you'll know what the problem is.

Thanks,will keep that in mind. I'm more or less replacing all of the parts,Out of curiosity I've opened up the Motor and it's hilariously badly made.Gonna shell out on an SHS motor for it.

Also convinced my friend to let me sell it once I fix it since the spoiled f*cker is getting a Classic army AKM for his birthday.

 

Can anyone get a rough idea of what I can sell it for?

 

CYMA CM031

 

Lightly scratched externals,but more or less mint

CYMA Gearbox shell

Shimmed,AOE'd,greased,Sorbo pads.

SHS 13:1 Gearset

ASG Ultimate tappet plate

SHS Motor(soon)

SHS piston

ASG Ulitmate m90 spring(soon)

ASG Ultimate spring guide(soon)

ASG Ultimate cylinder head(soon)

Rest is stock CYMA stuff.

 

I might even stick a decent barrel in it,but I doubt I'll have the moneys.
