Bragi is ready for heat treating:

Done with the blade shape and rough and medium grits. I’ve got it up to 120 grit by hand. Next to start fitting the handle pieces and have the blade heat treated. 

I’ve only got a few pits and a little scratching in the fuller. I’m pretty happy with it. I should get more of it out after I heat treat it. I left the edges a little thicker than a penny to help reduce warping during the quench. Then I can grind the edges back to a real edge.

I should be able to start carving the handle this week!
