    I'd like to see a cross-section of them. I was reading on woodbee carving, about taking the blades out of a pocket knife and making handles. But it never discussed how much tang to have recessed.

      Thanks Joe! They do flex a little, but not really noticable when carving. Being so thin and sharp they cut very nicely.

        I usually make the tang however long the sharp of the blade is. I've also done half the length for the tang and haven't had any problems.

          These blades started life as farrier's hoof trimming knives. The tips have been modified to suit me with a Dremel and cut-off disks. The tangs are about the same length as the exposed edge length.
          They would be 2" or less. They are surface mounted , a carved inlet canted at 15 degrees, and a puddle of epoxy. The whipping makes them look pretty. I've made at least a dozen like this over the years, nothing has ever come apart. That has impressed me.

          So, I believe this has more to do with the carving techniques. The tools will hang together just fine when built in the most useful style.

            Boy Anders, Those are some real beauties.
            If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

                Those are some very nice knives. Looks to be comfortable in the hand also. Thanks for the eye candy.
