    It is a ********* knife.

    Mark......Sadly it is a beautiful chunk of wood that has been poorly stabilized.

    Nice work.

    Did the knife come with that really long machi or was that part of the mod?

    The machi was long to begin with and I did pull a few mm off when I rounded it.I did not realize that it was a bit long until it the handle was mounted

    I like the long machi kinda masamoto-ish Looks good Mario. Did you make the handle is that some kinda guard on the end of the ferrule?

    Nice work. What finish do you use on your handles?

    Mike I made that handle about a year ago and it has been sitting in my wood box,I would not sell it due to the stabilizing issue.That is a chunk of brown camel bone scale in front of the ferrule.


    TB......I did not put a finish on this handle,I did wax it after the pics.
