Good day!! So I've been forging for about a year now. Built myself a forge with a home grown design, grabbed some bootleg tools and off I went. Currently grinding my blades free-hand on a 3"x24" makita floor sander turned upside down on a compost bin. Blade is 5160. No idea what type of wood the handle is made of. Though it looks like bronze, definitely a solid gold wafer on that pommel. Looking for some feedback on the blade. What do you ladies and gents think?!
