Dragonsbane Poniard – Part 3

I finally got the poniard to the point I could harden and temper the blade.  It’s been a long time getting to this point!  Above, you can see it “in the white” after hardening and tempering, and then a good bit of cleaning up to remove the detritus left behind by the heat treatment.

I also carved in the waist (above the crossguard), refined the copper crossguard shape, and drilled the hole for the retaining rivet.  While that may not look like much progress

, let me assure you it was much more complicated than those few items might indicate!

Thanks for looking!
