Very nice and thank you for inspiring me to do more hot fitting. Seems like a great solution to lots of little things that hang me up.

Beautiful sword..

To Scott: Sure, do it. It will be stunning with your laminate blade!

I made various groove hammers first, with them forged the pommel.
Cheers,

It seems you pierced the pommel when it was already shaped, how could you do it without deforming it?

Did you drill some holes before as a guide?

I pierced this pommel with pointed hammer. It gets deformed and spread to sides during piercing, it has to be "repaired" with hammer.
