I finished up the last three pre-forms last night. I plan on walking in the woods to seek some suitable handle material. The second picture is of an oak stick that had a natural handle shape. I embedded a number of contemporary and fossil shark teeth along it’s 22” length. Most people freak when they get a look at it.
Although not a wood product, the steel cutlass was draw filed out of a Schwinn bicycle fork with an tapered oval tubular bicycle fork wrapped with deer skin for a handle. The basket hand guard was from a sheet of copper nickel. Circa 1986
