The best thing to do and easiest way to do it is to get your blade hammered out like a piece of bar stock and before you start forging in the bevel from spine to edge or part way if you are doing a sabre profile, hot cut a section from the spine to the tip of the bar. Sort of like an upside-down 'tanto point". maybe a shallower angle and longer but you get the idea. Then as you forge in the bevel, the tip will naturally move up "Bowie style. when you get a bit of practice you can cut it a bit earlier, while it's thicker, and "Tune it" as you forge in the Distal taper.
