    so, the pics and info<br>i chose a brusletto nansen blade, it is the same as on my brusletto-kniven and i like that one a lot. <br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=219&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/2013-014.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br>the blade is 9.3 cm long, according to the knife-heaven site the tang should be 10.3 cm, but it is shorter, i think around 6.5 cm.<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=220&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/2013-015.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br>with the knife also came a whole promotion package, four calendars, two fishing knife flyers, two hunting knife flyers, two "made in lapland" stickers and two more stickers<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=221&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/2013-016.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=222&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/2013-017.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br>i cut out a piece of unknown hardwood for the handle and trace the basic shape, tho i've changed it a little now. i cut the slot for the tang with a 2 mm drill bit and a modded jigsaw blade, worked great!!<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=223&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/2013-018.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br>it is now glued and clamped up, no school tomorrow( <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"> ) so then i'll work on it some more<br><br><br>
