Nice looking.

Burl is always a nice touch, at least I think it is.

Ditto - that burl looks wonderful, Rob.

thanks again steve,Tim,i am pulling my work up a lot more now,trying to refine things now that i am getting on a bit,this is my 17th year at this,so i am trying to develop some crisp products to replace the existing ones.I am using a Rockwell hardness of 52-55 these days in response to some earlier concerns (never had one break yet though)and fitting everything together nice and tight.I have another sword to show later in the week which is a totally new style for me.
