My sword beater is finished!

Here is my finished sword beater. It is made of poplar and is 29inches from end to end and about 3inches wide at the widest part of the blade. I'm lucky that the maker decided to use a draw knife to make it and then scraped it instead of sanding using sandpaper - So I have a period sword beater! Yeah! The last step will be oiling the wood to seal it so that it's smooth and doesn't warp.
Here it is!

How it compares to my current warp.
