    I like the damascus pattern and the edge profile. I think I'd shave some off the top so it has more of a point on the tip.

    I love it when a plan comes together.. Here are a few pics of the blade after the main grinds, and etched.. Next I will add Thorn and vine filework along the spine. Then make the matching damascus bolsters..
