Yes Matt I used some 3mm pins just to secure it , its glued aswell but thought it would help hold it all together with a nice tight fit. As for giving you a run for your money, I dont think you have anything to worry about, I wouldnt have a clue where to start when forging my own :laugh:

you should try one with thicker steel next time you have done a cracking job on that one you would see the filework better with thicker stuff it would be a more bulckier blade to
