I'm going to switch to making all of my western handled knives as hidden tang with an upgrade option to full tang (scales) with pins, etc.
Current orders will be made in either configuration done at the customer's choice. I will contact the customer before I start working on their knife to ask them which they prefer. Please don't send me a message at this time, it'll just slow me down.
The below images show the full tang w/scales & the hidden tang configurations. Note that the hidden tang will have a full width choil with step down to the tang, this is for strength and less flex.
