    The warrior monk has blade length of 220 mm and was ground from Wirtz-Damascus.
    Handle and sheath are made from Ibex horn and copper for the fittings.
    Handle slabs are steel pinned and the tang is riveted over the butt.
    Overall length is 365 mm.

    this artists are always a big source of inspiration
    perfect accoustic background while working on long time consuming projects


    Cheers

    I really like the rustic look, would like to see a better blade shot. You picked one of my all time favorite bands to work too.:)

    Thanks for the nice comments, Gentlemen!:)

    Grouser1741, I think its called frame handle or mortised tang.
    Oversizing scales is also seen in history here and there, often on antique Kard knives.

    Stumpy, I got a different look on the blade here:


    Cheers

    Thai style? I have a knife from Chiang Mai that is almost identical in pattern. Glad you used a flatter profile on the handle. I hate those round handles found on most Thai jungle choppers.

    Sidehill Gouger: I hate them too:confused: I thought they only made them turned round to safe time
    but I looked at historical swords in the National museum in Bangkok and they also had round handles.
    ...they missed the adantages of oval handle shapes since at least 800years....o_O
