Looks like the bad guy's knife. The use of concave lines and flutes just says "celtic vampire biker". Very cool!

Holy smokes, Jake. I think that may be my favourite, so far. The whole piece just feels really... balanced? The transition from the habaki to the bolster is really excellent, as is the bolster to the handle, and on and on. Thanks, this was a nice way to end a day.

I can't add much, except that is a dark and sinister-looking bit of kit!  In a good way, of course.  B)
