    Midnight Fighter

    This is another fighter I have had in the works for sometime now. Finally finished it up today. 9 3/4" W-2 blade with ebony handle and iron fittings. 15" overall.

    Ray I'm so glad to see that finished, and it so freakin beautiful and deadly at the same time. I think this is one of my favorites ever - don't I always say that!? Happy New Year Ray, this is an awesome start.

    That's a fair bet Ray! LOL! I just wish it was gonna be mine, is all. But I'll have to content myself with the collaboration knife and the sweet little mini hawk you made me. ...Dang...

    Ray,

    That's one of my favorites of all you've made, and I've been paying attention for a while. It pretty much pushes every button I have! Can you tell us how you attached the pommel?

    Normally the knives I make have through tangs and this one is the same except I did add a couple hidden pins to help with keeping the pommel in place. The end of my tangs are threaded and while I am working on the knife I use a nut to hold things together. After I have the knife epoxied and it has cured I'll remove the nut and peen the end of the tang.

    Here's a previous knife with the end of the tang peened:

    ...The tang wasn't peened on this one? How did I miss that when I saw it? (Yes, I got to hold this one for those of you who care. One of the big perks of living near Ray : ) ).
