Lovely Display piece; all the stress risers could give trouble in use.  As a SF fan my first thought was "Do Not Take Hawk Into An Energy Weapon Fight!"

Well done.

Here is a discussion that may help: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stress_concentration

It's used in bladesmithing where certain aspects of design can decrease the strength of a blade greatly.  A common example is making the transition from the blade to a smaller tang have sharp internal  corners  "L" instead of "J" (given the limits of ascii art) where the sharp 90 degree can act as a stress concentrator.

i forged it in "agricultural spring" less carbon than car spring and went thru all the tempering process , i'll give it a bit of a hard time to see .but as you say it's more of a display hawk than a proper working tool ..
