That's going to be cool! I have wanted to make a slim knife like that, but I want to try something different. Instead of a ricasso. What if the whole knife was tapered, and the handle scales were mounted at an angle? I might need to draw a picture to explain it better.

No sorry,

my father is just 1 week in the hospital with cancer. I not have the motivation to make knifes at the moment.

Looks good. As others have said, a nice little package. The handle is interesting. I doubt that we could get whale bone here in the states.
