Holt one man tank update

First of the casts, only the main parts the barrels did not really looks nice so had to make new once and mold them too which is still drying at the moment.
Also almost done with the Red cross nurse in her going out uniform, took me so time to found a picture of the American nursing uniform as there was some difference to the more known British version.

Cheese knife

New blacksmithing project a forked cheese knife

base material still on the tong side, simple strip of 20x5mm and bevel started on the blade end

fork bit chiseled it in and forged the tang out more

end of the afternoon it looked like this, not that good the curl sticking out would block cutting. Note glowing bat project of my colleague  

it will end up something like this I hope, curl cut away and a smaller curl forged and tucked in the ricasso bit more shaping and grinding
Overall still a bit heavy and of balance I hope the profiling and grinding will fix that.
