This might not sound like something exciting until and unless one sees it with their own eyes. This masterpiece is impeccable and just too detailed. The colors are true to the source, and it feels like a lifelike replica when one zoom in on it.

One can only imagine the amount of effort that went into the carving of this beautiful little sword. But what everyone can agree on is the fact that it must have taken him a lot of practice to pull off this gem.

Fans cannot get over the details at the showcase!

The details on the sword are attracting plenty attention from fans. Some are praising the result, while others are mentioning how they would never be able to do such a thing. And some have asked the user to upload more of his work.
