Nice work! I'm digging on wide-blade, low-tip profiles.

It's my cannon S90,they do look wide in the pic.I made four at 48mm and four at 50mm.Also I am not making knives for sale,just don't want any forum forum confusion.

Ah, that must be it. Either way, they look great--nice to see what you and Marko have started doing since your trip to Devin's.

I finally finished my first blade.I had to re-grind it three times before I was happy with the convex grind.

I finished another one.What a PITA making a handle with a half dead sander.The handle is a ginormous one that is made from ringed gingee,blackwood,and buffalo horn.I might do a pass around with this blade but the large handle might throw a lot of you off.

specs:
48.5mm tall
250mm edge
2.79mm over the heel
.79mm at the tip

I like the profile Mario. A little Carter influence? Nice work indeed!
Not quite sure about the ass-end of the handle though. The rounded part, that is.

I whacked some off the end so it is no longer ginormous,it's just f'in large now.

I think that was a very very wise decision. I was very unsure about the oversized end cap on an otherwise beautiful handle. The design looks a lot more balanced now. Fit and finish is excellent from what I can judge from the photos. Well done!
