Finally finished what was supposed to be a Persian fighter. Stacy was the one I think that pointed out that it would need a up swept blade. Next one will have one. 11" OAL, 6.5" blade, 5160, wood I can't remember just now.

Any comments or critique are more than welcome.

Thanks for looking.

Looks good, Patrice! The blade shape *kinda* reminds me of some of Matt Bailey's recurves (which is a good thing :D). Neat curves with unique character. There's nothing wrong with different.

I like it Patrice. Does this knife have through tang construction? If so, you did a good job of snaking the tang through the handle.

Cool knife, I'd like to see a pic of it sitting upright so we can see the full curveture of the blade. I really like knives with curves, they seem to have a little more personallity. Good job.

Mike, it's a partial tang. The nut is only there for decoration. It would have been a little tricky to thread it through there as you say and beyond my skill level sadly. Someday.

No sheath on this one cotdt.

I'll see about getting a better angle pic to show the curvature.

Thanks again for the good words guys, means a lot.
