And I will take the joys thereof
And the consequences reap.

That is one handsome blade, Very nice indeed.

WOW! I love it! It is really, really nice. Great work Ben! I like the beautifully carved grip the best, but the sheath is gorgeous as well. In my opinion this is a great overall piece! Is the grip riveted to the tang?

Thanks for all the kind words.

Yes, The tang comes roughly 2/3 of the way up (in from the blade) the grip and has 2 copper rivets.
