    Good morning everyone!
    I forged this chopper trying to leave the most of the brut on it. Turned out pretty well, at least for me.
    The blade is forge out of 5160 steel. The tang is tapered, cero grinded convex edge, and false upper edge. The blade is etched with iron perclorite.
    The scales are made out of natural guayacan wood, fixed to the tang with coper pined pins and a coper tube to put a safety cord on it.
    The sheath is leather, textured to match the rough surface of the blade.

    Love the lines. Nice texture on the sheath to match the blade.

    Very nice. Love the scale overhang/contoured tang. Can't remember what that's called.
