I like the maple accents in the handle, looks good with the leather. At first I didn't see your hand in the first picture, that thing's Massive!

It has the look of a broadsax almost... I love it.

I had never seen Tuvan knives before, but they look a lot like Tibetan ones. Not surprising, I suppose.

Yes Alan, you are right... tibetian, china´s, mongolian, siberian - very similar form. This my is really just shape inspired and form of sheath is enough out of tradicional Tuvian´s.

Ok, here is result... big knife 49cm, small "kestuk" (women knife) 28cm, leather sheath tuned alike knives. Thank you for looking.
