I'm working on a second part, assembly.

I saw a bunch of scrap stuff in a bucket behind your anvil; is that all failed stuff or just things you never finished?

The grey bucket has projects in various states, some are failed.  I have kaowool in the bucket and use it for annealing and normalizing or just to put the hot metal in when I'm done.
There's an orange bucket under a work bench, it's just scrap.

Nice job
Did you make the sheaths also
How is the handle attached ?
Is it just glued on to the short tang ?

I hate it people glue a handle on.  These are done in a narrow tang/bolt through fashion.  Threads are brazed on to the tang and a long nut is silver brazed on the pommel.  The handle is filled with epoxy and screwed together.  The epoxy is just to stabilize and seal the handle, it doesn't have anything to do with holding it together.  When I get that second video edited it will cover that process.

Oh, yeah, I did the sheaths also.  I need to get better at that part.

That makes sense.
I don't see anything wrong with those sheaths.
