New one-handed sword design

When designing SWAG-0002, I couldn’t decide whether it should be held with one or two hands. In the end, I compromised and made the handle one-and-a-half hands long. That’s where this next shape comes in.

One-handed sword minus cutouts and hole pattern

The sheet metal outline currently weighs about 0.65 lbs if made out of 1/8″ aluminum, which is about half that of the larger SWAG-0002. I will next put cutouts to make it look cooler, and a hole pattern so two pieces can be bolted together for greater bending resistance (read: moment of area).
