Thanks Nicholas.

Long, long time ago I made knife for myself with the same shape. Only blade was at 14 inches long and proportionately wider and thicker. I lost it while moving to another city :(

Great job on the guard and the handle is very nicely shaped too. The fit and finish look spot one. A really great job overall, especially considering that it was made without power tool. The sheath is very well made too.
