    Looks fantastic and the taper seems like it would serve a practical purpose as well.

    D handle for 165mm petty

    I sort of like how low of ambient light alters the look.

    Thanks Mike
    They have blind mortice and tenon joints. Mortice partially extends into tenon, allowing for tapered design.

    In day light.

    I shortened a taper (proportionally) and blended edges for a more comfortable hold on a petty handle.

    Those are nice, Marko. I haven't tried a Coke bottle handle on a full tang blade, btu I have done a number of them with hidden tangs. My advice, Start with with slightly larger handle in mind than what you want to finish with.:big grin: What I have found is that with that type of handle, you can feel if even the tiniest bit needs to be sanded down some more.
