I was able to get a picture of the gap, its about 1/2 mm wide for about 15mm and then has a smaller gap for about 25mm.

Back to the top for another look, while I was finishing up the handle I took off a little extra and now the very end of each scale is slightly shorter than the steel; thus price drop! $105 shipped

The blade color is from people handling the blade, it will be given a clean up before it is shipped.

Bump.
Price now includes free high grit belt finish if the buyer wants it. The finish is about the equivalent of 600 grit hand sanded.
