Sorry I am trying to use IMGBB but its not working
Thanks guys. It IS a beautiful blade. Scary sharp too. It would be nice to have it repaired, as I've fallen for it. But if we have to replace it, oh well.
Im not worried about the etching. It's just mustard. Could be redone in an hour or two. It is a beautiful swinger though. At first I was worried about the forward balance but it chops beautifully. I really like this design.
