Hey all, All is done with number 3 except the sharpening... 1084 carbon steel, orange osage scales, brass pins and thong tube and I stacked some purple and grey spacers for a bit of an accent. Lots of lessons in this one for sure. Tried some different things, had some issues, had to redo some stuff, but in the end I got it done and for number 3, I believe I can still hold my head up. Plunge lines are still not awesome, but way better than my first attempts. The swedge ended up much further along the spine than I would have liked as I kept messing up and had to keep moving back, and it isn't as crisp as I would have liked. I also had issues with my epoxy and had to clean and redo some spacer work because of it leaving gappy spots. I could have spent a bit more time working through the grits sanding to have a cleaner finish but I figured for a practice blade, I am not going to get too worked up... Anyways, would love a bit of feedback! Thanks!!
