    Sweet... I'd thought about having a conversion done on that knife but I didn't want to risk not being able to stick a handle on it. Thanks for the information and the pic!

    LOL and that's after cutting and grinding from the butt end hoping to find the non existent tang!
    I can't help but wonder what the blade would be like if they put 1/2 the engineering they must have spent on the damn handle.

    Yeah really. What the hell is with all that crap in there anyway?

    The two of you have done some fine work. Having done a handful of Yo to Wa, I've come to fear them as much as I admire them. Though its been said, let me echo it... that is some A+++ welding.

    Thanks guys. I used to weld for a living back in the day. Had to get away, before the Argon made me completly nuts like the rest of the crazy sonsabitches I worked with. This is only the second time I have welded in the last twelve years, almost forgot how fun it is.
