I feel complimented that the two of you, who know a lot more about knives than I do, both picked the knife that I did.
I chose #2, with the exposed tang at the pommel. I also thought the tip looked stronger on #2, given that the false edge does not run all the way to the End.
alan jumped right on the work Sunday, since he knows that Scott is trying to get a holster together in the next three weeks.
The tang will be drilled, kind alike Knife #5, but the scales will not be. The entire knife will be bead blasted.
Any further input will be appreciated.
