I've been working on another blade inspired by the katzbalger style sword... and honestly can't figure out if I like it. I think I want the whole guard to be broader, which would mean I need to untangle and untwist then draw out. I rather like the perfect squareness of the guard material though (I cheated and did the cuts with and angle grinder), and don't trust myself to perfectly squarely draw out the guard. Then I started doodling some other neat ideas I like a bit more, but only work if I draw out... but is it worth it? Maybe I set this guy aside and experiment. In retrospect I should have played with this design in mild steel first before cutting up a bar of S7
