The blade is after grinding,The customer will make final grinding and etching. When the handle is made I will post a picture of it. :)

I etched it lightly to show You the pattern and inscription :)

That is awesome! I wish I could give mine to the customer to do all the laborious polishing too :)

I've been watching this unfold, but have yet to make comment.

This came out amazingly well. I really like the patterning in the fuller and the inlays look really nice against the pattern.

Great work.

Wow! This is inspiring! Thank you very much for detailing the entire process.

 

I'm impressed that the inlay retained it's shape after forging.

 

Beautiful overall sword shape, too. Great fuller lines.
