P-160: Metalworking Forge Update 6

by on Aug.13, 2015, under Inventions, Miscellany

This time I concentrated on the hilt of the blade. I began rounding out the handle, and making the finger choil (the protrusion at the end of the hilt, just before the blade, designed to prevent the users fingers slipping onto the blade during use).  I also flattened out the blade more.

The top of the blade is bent slightly, this will need to be corrected. This happened while I was making the indentation for the finger choil.

The next goals are to finish flattening the blade, finish rounding the handle, and then finish the finger choil. After than I just need to temper it and polish it, and the basic blade blank will be done.
