    It is 34 cm long. The blade is 20 cm long, 5 cm wide and 6 mm thick, forged of motorcycle chain with 5160 carbon steel core.
    The handle is made wenge with bronze tube pins.
    Its cave is made of 4 mm thick, sturdy cowhide with a little raised bronze ornament.

    Thanks a lot! :)
    I really like the feel of these handles, they give a really secure grip, but demand a lot of extra work.

    Thanks a lot! :)
    Well, I had some sidework, not related to knives so I couldn't make anything in the past 1-2 months. The downside of being a day laborer.

    Whew! Thought you might have been abducted by goblins and held in a cave, or something....;)
