    Looks like a nice profile. Kinda Fowler/Ealy-esque... What are the dimensions?

    The bolster needs work, it's too big. The handle looks uncomfortable.

    That looks like an exciting development! More pics please!

    205mm edge and 50mm at heel. I'm trying a lost wax bolster in nickel silver that has no nickel nor silver. My intent is a wa/yo handle.
    Thanks for the input Eamon, I shall take it under consideration and maybe ease the edges a scotch.

    I like the bolster with the straight slot screws.
    Gives it kind of an industrial steam punk look.
    Not to sure about the handle though.
    Looks uncomfortable. Are you supposed to rest your pinky in the hole at the end?

    Now that definitely sounds uncomfortable.

    Just teasing you.
    I look forward to seeing this knife as it progresses along.

    I may even use a hunk of your stuff in the handle! If you behave!
