Mat Cauthon's ashandarei

This is my 1st attempt at Mat's ashandarei. The blade is 24" and it is 94" overall. Both blade and haft are pine. Unfortunately, it's very hard to see the ravens and the inscription down the haft now that it's black.

When Rand revived him after the hanging, Mat unknowingly translated the inscription from the Old Tongue it's written in. The ravens are actually described as being inlaid in a metal even darker than the black of the haft, but doing that was beyond me. I had to settle for carving it all the same way and staining the haft in the" darkest" black I could get.
