This might be one of the most challenging forging projects in a while.  The core of the blade and handle are 7/8" cable while the top and bottom are smaller cable.  The smaller cable was forging into guards then forged welded to become the blade.  All in all the technique has potential although I need to refine the technique.

I wouldn't call it skill, just determination and a heavy hammer.  [sneaky]
