That is a really fine knife with some nice details. The carving on the handle is impressive, and I like the slanted line between the handle and sheath when closed. How is the tang held into the handle?

Sorry, I’m not good at English, tang? If it’s about the design, I used checkering tool.

Welcome Verowilson.
We appear to have some language issues ? You have taken a knife blade forged by a master in 1070 A.D. and made a new sheath and handle from Luoro ?

A tang is the part of the knife, the part that does not cut, that goes into the hilt, the handle, Allen wants to know how you made it stay there.
And I want to add my complements as well, nice work !

No, 1070 refers to the steel type (AISI 1070, I believe) not produced in 1070 AD.

Nice job!

Greg
