Subject:
So far on the chisel.. *PIC*

David Weaver
Some tang and bevel refinement yet before heat treat. Wider bevels would look better, but I feel like I'm playing with fire if the cross section gets too complex, potentially inducing a crack in heat treat. About 3.6 mm at the business end and 6.5 mm at the edge of the tang.

Rough finish will be cleaned up of it makes a decent chisel, and tang tapered to a point with bolster added last.
