  1. Thank you. Its not a very common style. Its one of my theory of how these blades could look like. I think they could have been made from splited bone in the past. If they would have shoulder at the tang they could break easily. the handle is mounted the same way as the other hidden tang blades. one of my first one yakut knife with this type of blade
  2. Thank you. Yes sometimes, but straight after quenching they can still be fixed.
