I love the horimono on the tanto mick, very nice!
As for the razorback..... That's something else, the features and geometry on the blade are something I've never seen before, love the boar tusk on the sheath.
Nice additions to your collection. :tumbsup:

Mick, you can resize your pics in the edit image menu. Set it to 800×600 and click the little lock icon

tell you what geordie when you read about james bowie and the famous sand bar fight what was it they say (he defended himself with what onlookers describe as a large butcher knife) its this one that comes to mind lols not bad really when they say dont bring a knife to a gunfight it sure didnt do him any harm in spite of the wounds he sufferd what was it shot a couple of times stabbed a couple of times and still killed a couple of the bad? guys i think he disembowled one and the other got his comupance i think he nearly lost his head how he survived that lot beats me but i hear these texans are a tough lot lols

geordie if you do decide to get the spike kawk and want to use it the advice is to remove the (what they call a set screw) otherwise when using it you,ll end up with a dirty great groove going down the top end of the hawk handle caused by said screw in the hawks head as the hawk hits and digs into the target the handle somtimes moves a little causing said groove the cutting edge is very sharp the spike is somwhat like that on a medieval war hammer pity the poor sod on the receiving of that thing some guys ive seen have removed the black paint from theres with excellent results looks a bit more authentic that way

on the gang hatchet the chinese characters rub off very easely after being handled a couple of times but the piece is very nicely made the cutting edge is coated in laquer but a couple of wipes with your accusharp soon sorted that and put a bloody sharp edge on it as my poor finger can testyfy too wouldnt mind polishing the hatchet to a mirror finish bet that would look a treat
