Chamfered Blade Edge

I am trying to replicate this chamfered edge of the blade by extruding a surface along a curve and trimming the surface back. However this method on the bottom section does not provide the results I require.

I was wondering if someone would be able to assist with an easier method of performing this task please.

The easiest way to do it is making flat plates and bending them with Bend command.

Might find some tips near the start of this video…

Build it in 2D and use flow along surface.

Thank you for both replay.

However when I try to use the Flow Along Surface tool I am only able to select a section of the target section.

You are obviously not using the target surface I provided.

I rebuilt the section curve so there is a single target surface instead of a polysurface. This is required for the flow command

That’s because I wanted to try and learn how to complete the process myself and having done so I now understand the task requires a single target surface instead of a polysurface, which was not obvious.

Thank you for your help.
