This I squished down on end and spread it out until it was about 1/4 inch thick. I punched a hole roughly in the center.

Then I added a slot off center and started to open it up until I could start putting some hawk/axe drifts into it.

Once I got a decent sized drift into it, I started to neck down the sides around the drift.

Now I started to spread the lobes out with a cross peen and extending the bevels out.

This is after HT and hand sanding to 220. This will be a little Ulu. I may just keep this as an herb chopper or maybe even a head knife for my leather work.
