Progress on the little Hadseax blade

One step at a time;-). I now polished the blade a bit and did some etching. Towards the tip you can see that I only forged the tip moderately to obtain the straight lines of the pattern. I like the effect on the topmost picture, near the tang there´s a structure that looks like a dragonship vessel on sea to me...;-)

I am still about it which handle it shall get. I would very much like some wood from an old dragonship, as Jake Powning once did with a sword (Vidhirhrafn). But I think I have some esoteric materials lying around still...;-)

Or maybe it will just be the old stag antler...I am still contemplating;-).
