Thanks for reading! It's actually not a whole lot of time when it's spent taking care to get geometry correct and working up through the grits. If it were spent hogging away material at a low grit then sure. After hot working it was within approximately 1/16th of an inch in all dimensions save for the curved tip, which was left long so I'd have enough to work with.
That's super cool! It would be cool to embed some LEDs in one of the bottom layers.

Yup, agreed, that's exactly what I did and it's the safest way.
Yup it is throughout the blade, though it will be slightly different on each side because of the distortion of layers during the forging process. If you reallyy want to know for sure about your piece, you could always polish off the sides and re-etch it, though you would definitely risk damaging it.
