As you can see the 18" WW II is some what smaller than the 18" AK and it is alot lighter too.

Bura did an Excellent job on it.:D

I like horn handles so I ordered this one and it really paid off.:D
 
Just a tip you might want to try...if you find the horn handle too slippery, you could always use 2000 grit sandpaper on the handle to remove the 'shine'. This turns the handle a matte black and it greatly improves the grip. You might have to put some Hooflex on the handle after though.
 
Never had any gripping problems with the horn handles, but thanks for the tip.
