Death of a Wakizashi; Birth of a Tanto?

Something one learns in bladesmithing is that sometimes things just don't go well. As I teach my students, "Remember, you can screw it up beyond saving at any point in the process. But if you know what you're doing, you can save quite a bit."

Case in point, this sad ending to a wakizashi that was going well. However, perhaps this is actually the starting point of a tanto instead?
