I like the handle but the blade really lets it down, it'd be nice to see it with a better, thicker blade. :D

Would be a chalange , never worked in ebony before. Anyways it will be after I get the Rohan sheild done gonna get some copper tape fer the edging and I've found a big ass handle fer the back that looks hand forged but not to expensive.

Looks lovely. 8) Would be great if the blade was a little curved!

Looks good. Needs something like a practical tanto blade though. You could sand down and carve/paint the saya then.
