    Been exploring tapered tangs and wood for handles lately. Just finished up these four. I used Purple Heart, Osage Orange, and Tiger Wood for scales. E540BB83-DE7A-489C-BBF9-649FD1C87E3E.jpeg 829AD3DD-221D-42E1-8440-FDF7C3DAFDC1.jpeg D0200BA5-5490-49C8-A1E4-703AC9FCD055.jpeg

    When you taper the Tang like that are you doing a straight taper? And if so where is the brake over line? Or is it just a convex tang with no visible transition. I guess I'm wondering about how you have to sand your scales to fit that . Are they flat on the bottom or is your tang a convex shape calling for some custom sanding thanks for the help

    The tangs are flat ground and the transition point is blended so there is no distinct change in the lines to the eye.
