the tang goes all the way through the handle and is riveted at the end. here you can see somehow the end of the tang. I forgot to take a pic about that detail.

Matei: You've been teasing us with these stunning upset edges on knife furniture long enough! We'd REALLY like to know how you do it so some of us can add the technique to our mental tool kit.

Will you please post a series of progress pictures so we can see how you do this?

Thank you. Frosty The Lucky.

I like this just a tad less than I like your take on the blacksmiths knife. Great job!

I like it a lot. I'd like to see one with the whole tang done that way for the handle!

next time i'll make something similar, i'll take photos. I already made several ones with that upset running down the tang, but I lost the pictures (they are on a hard disk drive of a broken computer, have to recover them). I have another one in progress, I just have to complete the sheath...

That's a very unique design you can see traces of it in some of your other work.

that's not a technique that I invented - I just had to figure how it works and pushed it some little more, maybe (or not)

I think you did, hopefully my post was not taken to imply differently. The integrations and flow of the wood into the guard is certainly impressive.
