    Wow, that looks awesome! Very well done! Congratulations to Matt! I like the looks of the handle. East meets West.

    Curious... did you happen to wreck any previous attempts on this handle, as in grind into the tang slot at all?

    Very clean work by the way, I like it!

    Are all your westerns going to be in this style now?

    That was probably the only thing that didn't happen while working on this knife.

    I'm thinking about making the hidden tang western handle the basic with the full tang (with scales) western an available upgrade. There's people who like them both so I'll offer both but the hidden tang is easier to get great results plus it's more likely to not lead to re-work issues as wood movement is very much a reality with handles.
