    Here is the tang forged in (rough!)

    Do not tell me I can't, let me succeed or fail. Even a failure is a small success.

    I'm getting all warm and fuzzy seeing this unfold. And I was certainly taken back by the overall length on the picture prior to this recent one. It seemed never ending as I was scrolling down. My first reaction was "D* mn! This knife it's going to be a beast, you freaking go Heath!"
    Very much looking fwd

    I'm hoping for it to be a beast towards the heel but nimble towards the tip. Maybe an Olympic bull on ice skates!

    So she survived to the best of my knowledge. Felt no pings or heard no pops. There is some warping but that will come out in the tempering.

    I feel like it! I've come back to this thread for the 3rd time tonight, just to admire and plot out what I'm going to attack first once I get this bad-ass in my possession!

    It has been tough going and unfortunately this is now the third incarnation of the blade. This thine I went with a twin sister approach. Here are the pics after HT.



    I'm going to rough grind it and check for the feared stress fractures!
