    Yes very cool. Does the handle have like a 90° twist effect?

    Thanks for all the kind words. Dancom I'm not sure I know what you mean by 90deg twist effect?

    From the photo it looks like the handle is has an oval profile which appears to have twist in it. A better way to express this would be take an elliptic cylinder, hold one end fixed and rotate the other end 90°.

    Then again, it may be an illusion of light and grain coloration.

    must be an illusion of the picture, I used a template to ensure symmetry on the blade and spine sides of the handle, the side profile should be narrower (oval you mentioned). However, this was also my first hidden tang and there could be a twist in there I didn't notice.
