    I have a couple Filipino fighting knives that I purchased some years ago from a doctor back from some missionary work there. Great hand made knives, a little rough and crude but interesting none the less. I would love to see the finished blade. Thanks for sharing.

    Just looking at your photos, I can 'hear' the 'pinging' of the blade being struck by the hammer. Don't make the blade too sharp, Mr. Blackmore... I've heard that DaBird sometimes picks up da swords on da wrong end. :devil1:

    Earl ----- edamacte me --- the only "flatter" that I know about is some girls I messed around with in High School -- some were flatter then others but they all were fun :madaddy:

    Is that sledge at the bottom left in pic the "flatter" hammer ???

    Gary --- when Earl is done with this badass blade , I can get hurt with it at either end if i'm not carefull:devilzeek Just think of that old Foreigner song "Headknocker" and stay tuned for the twist Earl designed for me:demented:

    Yeah, the flatter is the square flat faced hammer. You use it by setting it on the blade and whacking it with another hammer to flatten the surface out.

    The bevels are hammered in and its starting to look like a sword. Next, if its where DaBird wants it Ill clean up the profile and refine the shape. Birdssword 6.5.jpg

    Got its profile cleaned up and the forging is finished. I put a picture of my ugly mug with it to give it some perspective. Birdssword 8.5.jpg

    Eblackmore, you're doing one helluva job on that sword! I know for a fact that DaBird is going to LOVE it! I've seen a ton of his collection and seen the blade styles he likes, and that's gunna fit riiiiight in! My only complaint is that I'm dying to see the finished project!
