Hello, I want to share with you my current project. The design is based on late 15th century bauernwehrs/ruggers. Total lenght will be around 40cm, blade lenght is circa 26,5 cm. I used NZ3 tool steel (vert tough and shock resistant). The blade is already profiled and tempered. It is differentially hardened (edge quench). Maybe the hamon will be visible. The next step is to give it a nice satin finish and make a handle. I plan to make some interesting detailes like decorated pin and multilayer forge welded cap. I already have a prototype of the pin. We'll see if I can solder it properly
