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!
