The haft is made of black ebony with an almost horn like appearance, brass collars, a brass top pommel, and brass securing knob with scrolling collar to hold the blade. The blade is decorated with silver koftgari in the form of scrolling flowers and foliage. It is particularly contrasting on a dark steel background.
Here it is! My 100% completed Solaire of Astora cosplay for Anime Expo 2014! I tried my best. This is the first cosplay i’ve really spent a lot of time on and did a lot by hand. Super excited to wear this! It feels awesome to walk around with this get up :)
*EDIT: I know some things are not perfect, like the silver bracers (leather) and chainmail, etc. but I had to make do with what I could afford.
