Reshaping a Blade
by Hunter Cuthalion
(United States )
Hi, I've been thinking about buying and customizing a Hanwei Tinker Great Sword of War, and one of the changes would be to make the tip of the sword pointed rather than extremely rounded.
Would cutting the trim off with a cutting wheel on an angle grinder work? I am fully aware that the process would take time because if the blade gets too hot, it could ruin the temper.
Also, would it mess up the primary and edge bevels? I know that there will be an extent of clean up work, and that I'd have to fix the edge bevels in the areas cut, but essentially will I have to re-create the primary bevel in the area cut as well?
That pretty much sums it up, thanks so much for your time and effort, I don't know what I'd do without SBG!
