Thanks I forge the blade shape knowing it would alter the twist pattern at the tip. Thanks for the feedback on the handle. It is surprisingly comfortable to use. Although I haven’t used it for more then 30-40 minutes at one time.
This is my most prized piece to date. I’m just 1 year into physically bladesmithing. I’ve been studying and reading for about 5 years. Minimal tools in my shop, no press or power hammers. A home built 2x72. Critique is welcomed
