    with every one trying thier hardest to do the wicked complex compund grinds these days i actually want to keep it simple and go back a notch these while a different proflie than normal will have a standard grind kinda like a bowie. it gives us that hybrid of recurve and japanese tanto feel with the american bowie thrown in :D i basically took all my favorite styles and designed a blade that incorperated them all while keeping it basic as well :D

    Great stuff, been following your work on Instagram and you always produce interesting designs.

    Interesting that it runs with CF spacers, I've never had any experience with non-metal spacers: any else ever try something like that? Is the balance much more neutral as a result?

    ive never seen any one else use composite as spacers but that doesnt necessarily mean no one has... but seeing as the blade is hollow ground i used the CF to counter act the extra weight out of the blade the first prototype was a still a tiny bit handle bias however ive changed the handle design to enlarge the holes and thin the ti slabs down try to counter act this i used too thick of titanium on the first one casue it was extar bit i had from another project and i had originally thought it would be the perfect thickness lol i was wrong but yes im trying to aim more neutral rather than blade or handle bias. the first prototype was 5.4 oz btw in case you were curious

    Lookin' good Ryan :thumbsup:

    Marlowe used CF for years on his bali's. He just recently switched back to Ti.
    Several others have used it too. Good way to knock some weight off.
