Progress on my Nessmuk folder

 I have now ground the blade coarsely, and still it needs some cleaning up. I will also thin it out a bit more, it´s still some 3,5 mm thick. It will get an etching to bring out the quench line. I have fitted a 8 mm bronze pivot, not rivetted yet. I plan to make some ornamental washers to rivet against and some bronze washers for the blade to run on the inside, as there´s plenty of room for that:-).
The tang´s rather long, but I like that, gives a firm grip. The handle will see some carving, too. I am about it still, maybe something with spirals and a dragon... or an owl...? We´ll see...:-)
