A bit made for metal, get a very high tpi saw blade. Also go have the jigsaw on a very slow speed

you used a jig saw to cut metal? I just have to try that when I make my knives, before I just used a grinder and it worked fine except it assent very accurate. What kind of bit did you use?

I can not promise anything.

Safety notes:
  • Gloves should not be worn when using equipment with fast-moving parts, such as sanding belts or spinning drill-bits. Entanglement would drag your habds into the tool.
  • When sanding at an angle, such as when adding the edge in step 4, the work-piece should be resting horizontally on the work surface, or stood vertically (in this case, point the handle straight up, rest the head on the work surface, and present the piece gently to the belt. Angled upwards, as you show, poses the risk of the belt snagging the work-piece and catapulting it towards you at speed. 
In a commercial workshop, both these actions could result in reprimand, written warnings or even termination of employment.

Having grumped at you, it's a cool piece. ;-)
