The right design, for a first sword?


Recommended Posts

So i have been knife smithing for a while now, and am beginning to think about moving onto larger projects. I have quite a ways to go with my knives before i am ready for sword smithing, but i want to begin thinking about a project, maybe designing and laying out the ideas. So i thought i would come here and see what smiths here had to say. What designs would you recommend for someone who will be making the transition from relatively small knives 4-7" into the world of swords. I do have copies of the master bladesmith, and the complete bladesmith, but as always books can only teach so much. Thanks for your time, advice and anything else you might have to say.
