    Good day!!

    So I've been forging for about a year now. Built myself a forge with a home grown design, grabbed some bootleg tools and off I went. Currently grinding my blades free-hand on a 3"x24" makita floor sander turned upside down on a compost bin.

    Blade is 5160. No idea what type of wood the handle is made of. Though it looks like bronze, definitely a solid gold wafer on that pommel.

    Looking for some feedback on the blade. What do you ladies and gents think?!

    It would look awesome if you had just hammered it out and ground it on a 2 x 72...for being ground on a fricken floor sander I would say it's amazing!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Cheers :beer:

    Thank you very much sir, that's amazing praise. I've kitted myself out with a 184 lb Vulcan anvil, next upgrade is the sander for suuuure.

    Excellent styling. Anything double edged for me is frustrating. A little more, little more, ooops too much. LOL You did well, especially when you take into consideration it's a floor sander!
