    Hey guys,

    Something new to share.
    I have always been fascinated with the kwaiken geometry and have made at least a dozen different prototypes without ever being 100% happy with them and, as a result, none of them saw the light of day.
    And now finally I have managed to reproduce in steel what I had in my mind all along.

    What do you guys think?

    As always, thank you for taking the time to check out my work.:thumbsup:

    Dmitriy

    Great design. Excellent "sweep" to the blade.
    Nice pick on the maple burl. Great texture to the handle.
    Beautiful!:thumbsup:
