    Here's something new. A variant of the Otzi knife.
    The blade is 2.75" long, 1/8" thick and forged from 1095 high carbon steel. The handle is maple with an imitation sinew wrapping. It has a hand stitched cowhide neck sheath.
    This knife is available for $135, feel free to contact me if you have questions.

    How far into the handle does the blade go, just to the base of the notch?

    I like it either way, just wondering if there is a tang sunk into that handle.

    After the notch there is a rat tail tang that extends 2/3 of the way down the handle.
    Thanks!

    The OP is from 2.5yrs ago so I’m guessing not.
