So did they get run over by a bus after you forged them? :mrgreen:

Awesome! I can't tell from the pictures, but is the blade wavy or is the (non-cutting) edge just not straight? The cutting edge itself looks pretty good =)

At first they look a bit misshapen, but on second glance they actually look great. Well done! And your name (stamped? engraved?) on them must make them a treasure.
