Tanto, 3 layer construction

This is in progress, needs polishing. Its constructed of saw blades and other scrap folded into a nice thick shobu zukuri with high shinogi. Quenched on the last day of 2009, just before the temperature dropped to far to do any work outside. I froze my toes and deep fried my gloves that day.
