Not many makers do this these days and that's because it kinda sucks to do. Lots of extra work, and gobs of frustration while learning, but it gets easier each time it's done. I LOVE the end results so it's worth it to me to do it once in awhile.

The picture shows the joint still rough finished, wait until it's all sanded smooth and seamless in appearance. :cool:

So, it differs from integral bolsters in that it is not a forged part of the knife?
