Here’s what the gig looks like mounted on a shaft made from a saguaro cactus rib I found in the desert around my land.

I made the hole for the 90 degree bend in the tang with the point of the gig, cut the groove for the shaft and made some notches on the back (to keep the wrappings from slipping) with the scalpel. Then, I trimmed and super glued the ends of the cord and sealed the wrappings with shellac.

I did all the forging, forge welding, soldering and heat treating with a Mapp gas torch, bean can forge, muffles, electric toaster oven and gas oven (for all the items). Some of the details were done cold.
