The axe pt.2

Here is the semi final product. Needs some clean up but I am reasonably happy with the turn out so far.
At this point I have decided to leave the engraving open and become more familiar with the silver inlay process.

The Axe

This axe was given to me as my first project under my apprenticeship to Sir Donngal. I have chosen to inlay the blade with silver and carve the handle with an approximation of Mammen designs.

Here is the rough drawn designs on the axe

I am hoping this project is not to ambitious of an undertaking. But the way I see it. Go big or go home.
