Pendray Wootz in progress

Today I cleaned up the outline, and finished the pre-HT hollow grinding. The hole at the end of the tail will contain a gold medallion. In the end the gold will be held between those 2 prongs, but I am not separating them until after HT.

I included a closeup of the blade hollow during grinding (80 grit). It is very tricky to capture well in a picture, but you can clearly see the alignment of the wootz carbides already. That is a very good sign, because it proves that nothing bad happened during forging.
