that is a great idea. I like the original and your interpretation. Please don't take this as critical, but I would like to see the sides of the handle (the wood and the steel) sanded to 400 or 600 grit with the scratches running lengthwise. It would be a little tight in the curves, and you would need a hard backer for the paper when sanding, but it would bring this dagger to a higher level.

I really like the work you have done here. I am not criticizing at all. I am just letting you know this in case you want to try it. It could help. People shared this info with me, and I am passing it on to you.


thanks for sharing.

Kewin has no trouble, every critic is good!
I use sandpaper with gradations of 100 and 180 deliberately to leave delicate scratches .... the style I have.
In this case, the blade only sanded with sandstone and no paper so it came out.
Austin thanks.
