      Damn right. I would happily buy one as it is. I could put a handle on it easily enough, maybe a guard as one seems necessary for a knife of this kind.

    I have always been interested in anything made from metal. The tanto is my personal favorite knife/short-bladed weapon. I have a question or two. How much mass do you lose from the scale that pops off? and what is the starting weight verse the final weight of the blade. You made 2 of those, what type of handle did you use and sheaf did you use for the final product?

    Dimitry Shevchenko,
    I have watched your content on KZclip and FB for a number of years now.
    I can honestly say from the types of tooling you have to the amount and quality of blades you produce, I can see you are a honed professional. I have always been impressed with your work and each video I’ve watched have kept me captivated to the very end.
    I have contacted you in the past, and even wished you well and safe at the beginning of the conflict your people are suffering through.
    I have been worried and wondering about you for a few months now as this is the first video I’ve seen of yours in some time. I have prayed for you and for your country and will continue to do so. I am very happy and relieved to see you are still producing top notch blades that hopefully will play a part in your country gaining its independence.
    What irony it is to think a barrel pointed at your country will be turned into something more personal used to deliver that message of independence !!!
    I like your style Dimitry 😉
    So until the next video, may God our Holy Father keep you and yours safe and deliver you from the tyranny of those who seek to hurt you.
