If it didn't have that enormous swedge thingy, it just kills it for me.
My thoughts exactly. I really like the looks of that handle, even the aggressive jimping. Love blade shape as well...but that swedge makes it an easy no go. Really ruins the look of it.
I quite like the look of the swedge and swell at the tip, it gives the blade a dog tooth appearance. Likewise, the curves of the handle and thumb scoop at the top of the blade/handle interface look really comfy. Also, great intermediate size for all-around use.
Functionally the discontinuity in the blade thickness might make through-slicing stuff a little lumpy, but with the thin stock, hollow grind, straight edge and nice looking handle, this will probably end up a pretty wicked tool above and beyond stabbing bad guys. Will need to see one "in the flesh" (again, not the stabbing kind of meaning) before I put my money down, but this one is intriguing for me.
