    Smatchet

    I just finshed shaping a smatchet blade. Any good ideas on what kind of handle would work well? Its a full tang design: I was thinking I'd make some wooden handles and bolt them to the sides, then wrap the handle in something. I'm also trying to make some kind of guard. I was thinking about using one from a ninja sword wall hanger for fun.

    If you can get your hands on some G10, that always makes a nice handle. You can grind it into whatever shape you want.

    Pics?

    The blade ended up being shaped into a bowie knife on account of I didn't really like how it turned out as a smatchet, and the steel was kind of thin for that. Its got a ten inch blade, 20 degree angle on its primary edge and 30 on its back edge. Pl4sma should appreciate the guard.

    Finally finished. I'm not too happy about how it turned out, but its alright considering the tools I had to work with.

    I cut myself pretty good in the production process:

    A hint to obtain a quick mirror polishing: take a 300 or 500 grit sandpaper and paper glue it on a piece of thin cardboard. Draw a circle of approx. 5 cms' diameter, punch a hole in the center and cut along the circumference. Take a 2 mms screw and a fitting bolt, and mount the disk of sandpaper on it, then mount the whole thing on a drill. Always grind away from the edge of the blade.
    It works better than its commercial equivalent and it's cheap.

    Besides, that handle totally needs some refining, man.

    Looks like you cut the claws into studs. That will work better when striking with the handle.

    Looks good.
