Challenge for you

Or at least I think it will be a challenge. What I need is a bar of damascus that once ground with a deep dagger grind will have a pattern inthe steel like the picture. Now I know my drawing skills are really bad but the idea is to end up with a fairly regular saw tooth pattern with each tooth being roughly 3/4 of the distance fromt the center line to the edge. Very few layers as I want each layer to be very indivualistic and with a large degree of contrast between layers after etching in the ferric. Is this a doable project, is this a difficult project and is anyone interested.
This will end up as the blade of a highly engraved and themed dagger.
