piece of 60 grade rebar in the photo's. 12" blade, bronze guard and cap with iron spacer. Handle is ebony. Long/lean blade that is very springy. Overall its just under 18" and weighs 9 oz. Bottom picture was just after I forged it. Decided to go through tang instead of full. The nut will come off tomorrow and tang will be peened after epoxy has cured. Yes it does have a few forge marks.
