    Just finished this one up :) A large size Kephart pattern with cocobolo scales! I used similar shaping of the scales as found on the originals so that the guard swells a bit on three sides of the handle. Also I tapered the tang to reduce weight. This one is right at 10 ounces. 5 1/8in blade tip to handle and just a hair over 10in overall. I used .200 thick 5160 for the blade.

    That Kephart looks great Bill and that tapered tang looks nice as well. Some day down the road I'd like to own one. Thanks,
