Glad you think so i'm also going to do some etching on the blade. However i don't know the design yet plus ill be doing the guard and pommel in brass as i have not worked with it before can anybody give me some pointers? Also i am thinking of etching something waterdragon like on both sides of the blade any ideas guys.

So here it is mostly file down and out little more work to be done. I also plan on etching it to look like an actual dragons tooth.
