    Wow, another beauty! I love the swirly "molten" look of the steel. The choice of materials is again superb.

    Yes, beautiful knife indeed! I like it a lot!
    How is rear bolster attached? Would be interesting to see photo from the rear...

    The knife is a hidden tang with a 10-32 bolt silver brazed into a slot on the tang.
    The butt cap has a 10-32 nut silver brazed to it.
    Fill the handle with epoxy and screw it together.
    I have a large angle on this butt cap and it was a real pain because as you tightened the butt cap it tended to lift
    the front of the knife off the bolster. I worked for over 4 hours trying to get it to work and finally I had to reduce the angle a bit so that when the cap was tightened everything stayed in place.

    I see, thanks!
    Good to know. I shall bear this in mind as I'm planning something similar with a larger angle...
