I made a tracing of a drawing Don Stith sends with the CD, of
the tang shape and glued it to the tang. I used it for a guide to
shape the tang.
A hacksaw was used to cut the tang to length.
The tang was first shaped using a Dremel tool then finished
up with a file. Then I filed a bevel on the edges of the tang,
making it ready for inletting into the stock.
