    I was afraid when I opened this thread I would see another BK-5 butchered into a tanto.

    BUT THAT LOOKS GREAT!

    As they used to say in better times, it is like totally gnarly.

    I can only imagine how fantastic that hilt would look on a Becker Patrol Machete.:eek:

    TM, thanks for the comparison pics.. .I see what the other poster is talking about, the guard isn't symmetrical :D but that's what makes it so beautiful to me.... :) I'm really not that big on this style but I just love what you've done with it, not sure if you put these styles out there in your line up but you need to.. .

    btw, why is it you used such a huge piece of material to turn that 'skull crusher'??

    Hmmm. Not really sure what you mean about the unsymmetricall gaurd. It is a s gaurd. So it is supposed to be shaped like that. As far as the material I turned the skull crusher out of. I didn't use the whole piece. Only about a inch off the end. It was the right material and it was left over from another job. So it was basically free.

    My standards for women are far from low. That knife is just so elegant, classy, sexy, and hot.

    You're most welcome. Will you be offering to create twin sisters or cousin BK5 knives as equally beautiful in their own way?

    That really is some great work. Personally I think that style guard fits that blade perfectly. Well done!!!

    glorious work Todd!
    and like the asymmetry - the S-guard being shorter on top is a good thing for choking up on the grip.
