My first attempts.

Interesting shapes. Are you looking for critique?

Yes .. of course. To add that the handles are of dried almond tree ... For my first attempt I started the big blade where it bothered me a lot during both forging and thermal cycles so that the temperature was the same everywhere.

The biggest thing that stands out to me is how extremely short the grinds are. Sabre grinds usually go up about half of the blades width, and full flat grinds go almost all the way to the spine of the blade. Your grinds are super short, only like 20 percent of the blades width. 

 

I recommend doing full flat grinds, they seem more difficult, but are actually easier to line up with each other on each side of the blade, and they make blades cut much better then short bevels, in my opinion.

Yes and especially the big one I wanted it to be the shape of the cut to withstand, because it will be used as a small ax.
Now I think that hardening has become difficult to change.
