All finished up... She isn't perfect, but she sure is pretty. I used the scrappy material I had laying around for the handle (trying to follow along with the unofficial theme) and so my brass is less than perfect... It has a little crack on the top by the base of the blade as shown in one of the pics, and it also had a hole drilled into it as seen on the one side...... It still is quite the looker.... Let me know what you guys think; the good, the bad, and the humorous!

Yes, indeed! That happened during polishing... I slipped off the end with my EDM stones and it chipped the tip... That led to me tossing it back in the oven for a bit...
