The handle is in stabilized Zebra wood, Jamaican blue mahoe, buffalo horn and vulcanized fiber.

weight: 214 grams
Blade length: 22,5 cm
Blade width: 3,5 cm
Blade thickness: 4 mm
Blade hardness: 63 HRC
Handle length: 12,5 cm
Handle thickness: 1,7cm

Very nice work! It looks slender with nice lines and the wood structure matches the steel pattern. Handle resembles katana bevels, never seen that before.

Thanks man! :)

Actually - I just freestyled a handle like this earlier - and since it has kind of become a style of mine. I find the diamond shaped handle to be quite handy to control the angle of the blade when cutting, slicing and dicing... I also find it aestetically pleasing. :D

Hehe, okay. Thought it might have been an abbreviation of your forge name.
