I've only been to Montana Once, and it was in July, it wasn't hot though... Max temp when we were there was like, 79 maybe... That was in West Yellowstone though. It was like 100 here the other day... In September... You guys have it good in Montana I'm sure.

Option 3 for where the burr caught- you could have cleaned up that little gouge, and put matching gouges on the other sides, and turned it into a detail.

Just Thinking out loud here... Would a WAR Blacksmith really go to this extent of precision for a Warrior tool? Especially if he'd make multiple of them... He might go for utility over the design... Make it strong enough (even if bulky), rather than small details precision tiny work...?

That being said, it's also why we watch, you go the extra mile for the pure joy of it!

A War smith wouldn't, although keep in mind war wasn't so industrialized as is today, weapons were heirlooms and more often than not were peoples own previously owned equipment. Most everything else was pole arms and bows which can be whipped up quickly in a pinch and handed out to the unskilled. But these are more "Noble" weapons. The kinds of gear a land owning gentry would have commissioned to be as much a decoration piece as it was a weapon intended to be used. Spending most of its time above the fireplace looking good, but still being fully capable weapons when the duty called which sometimes could be a Generation or so after being manufactured.

Alec, the 'Game' you refer to is called "Learning" and you will continue to play it your whole life! The good part is after many years you will become a Master and the mistakes will be much smaller, but unfortunately, they will persist.
Oh, and for the record, Montana is much better than Texas! I did my basic training at Ft. Bliss El Paso in 1980. I thought I was in hell. Turns out I was right!

Montana might be cool, but Texas has every environment possible, from Mountains to Deserts, to Lakes, and Flat Lands, including easy access to Padre Island and other places of fun. Don't think Montana has any of that.
