hi it's been a while since i didn't post anything in this forum and designed something but i just had this idea and it needs to be put on paper Big Grin

but the real reason why i'm posting this is because i have no knowledge whatsoever about latin and i MUST translate something in latin from english or french (since i'm a french canadian)

i want to keep this project a secret for most of it but if someone knows latin or knows a great site to translate pm me please

also, i would like the blade to be the perfect balance between piercing and cutting but i don't know what type i should use...

when i will know the blade type to use everything will be put together and i will be able to make the full scale drawing Big Grin
