    I forged this out of a 21x2x1/4" piece of 1080 and I make my own "mycarta"
    I think it'll work!
    OAL 23.5"
    Blade length 18" and 2.5" wide at the sweet spot!

    The micarta looks unique.. Did you make a ball instead of layering?

    I used 12 pieces of black t-shirt, 6 pieces of a dark red, 4 pieces of a brighter red, one yellow and one orange. All the pieces were 2"x11" and after soaking them I layered them then folded them in half and put as many twists in it as I could. Soaked my press with oil so the goopy mass wouldn't stick and squeezed the heck out of it. After it dried, I cut in 1/2 for two scales.

    Not sure why it wouldn't be....

    I think it would cut a tree in half with one blow. Flesh, even rotting, wouldn't stand a chance.

    I am sure that would take the head off of anything with one good swing!:eek:
    That is a real nice piece of work. I love the flowing curve of the blade and the nice active hamon.
    Great work sir.

    Cool blade.:thumbup:
