A small update to the knife you saw made on video Making hidden tang knife. Now I’ve almost completed the engraving designs for it. They are almost completed, because even after improving and redrawing parts of the designs I see places that can be improved. I probably will do one more round of redrawing them.

To give you a little perspective of the time it requires to design something like this. The front bolster design took about 12hrs and rear about 4hrs. Probably need couple of hours more to improve them. Soon, very soon I can start engraving!

Can you spot the problematic areas that still need improvement?

Just to remind how the victim knife looks like:
