Step 3: Construction of the handle
Once the blade had set, I marked up and removed material from the master template to just leave the handle section. Once again I drew around the template on show card and cut six identical pieces (only 4 are seen here).
Each piece was then coated in glue and laminated to the blade section.
Once all six were in place I again cut down the master template and drew around the lozenge shapes on show card, cut them out and glued them in place. I also drew around, cut out and glued the rectangular and trapezoid shapes and added them to the handle.
I again set this aside to set fully.
