Well for my first I figured starting big would help.



I wanted to get a better understanding of what worked and didn't work, and be able to see it all in larger scale.



Also, I was going to be moving soon, so I wanted to secure this beastie before I acidentally cut something or one. Nice and tight fit though, and was mainly just time consuming..



All in all it worked as planned, but one unforeseen aspect happened: I lost my enthusiasm for a second Sad it was a big project...



Now for some final sanding and stain. I am thinking of adding side pieces to secure/protect/cover the flanges, but I may just add a leather strap w/ snap or buckle. Still deciding on all that, and since I am trying to sell the whole thing, I don't know how much time I will have left to finish it as imagined.

The pen is mightier than the sword, especially since it can get past security and be stabbed it into a jugular.

The sword is a weapon for killing, the art of the sword is the art of killing. No matter what fancy words you use or what titles you put to
it that is the only truth.
