    Sorry i forgot the picture before the straightening :)

    [​IMG]
    The start. The draw :). C130, Oak, IPE wood and steel tube :)
    [​IMG]
    On that one it's a copper tube, but it's was too small :).
    [​IMG]
    I forged a bit the tang, and the "point" to increase the blade width.
    [​IMG]
    After to have glued the Ipe wood. I dit some woodrasp work :).
    [​IMG]
    Not bad, it's seem to be the same :).
    [​IMG]
    First time in hand, that is a great chopping blade to cut in the demon flesh :D
    [​IMG]
    Really cooooooool :D
    The blade has a diférential hardening (water and oil quench) and a dark gold flash tempering :).
    6mm thick of C130 :)
    [​IMG]
    Various part :)
    [​IMG]
    It's epoxied and pinned with a 4 mm brass pin.
    [​IMG]
    The handle after a long hand sanding work :).
    [​IMG]
    The handle stayed in linseed oil, after that i sanded, polished and put on stockolm tar. After 4 day, i cleaned it and put some bee wax on the blade :).
    It's a righter chisel with a second grind on 300 mm wheel to keep the edge sharpening easy :D

    In few day i will make some nice picture of the completed knife :D

    That was fun to make something like that. It's something i'm not used to do. Use steel tube to make a ring (the steel tube was 21mm witdh and i needed 28 mm :). That was a jeweler work to make the right ring :D

    I'm not used to work with wood :) and C130 is a steel i use only for straight razor. It's was fun to make something différent (and a bit stressfull after the first banana to the quench.)

    Various picture :).

    C130 6mm thick with différential hardening water and oil. Flash tempering to the dark gold.
    The blade is an almost zero grind righter chisel with a hollow grind on the second side of the blade.
    17-18 cm sharp for more or less 35 cm long.
    Ipe and oak handle with a mild steel hammered ring.
