    I used Barge between the leather, because I use it a lot for leather projects, but contact cement would work as well I think. Then 2 part Loctite 24 hour epoxy between the tang and leather, the plastic spacers and the leather, and the brass guard & end cap and leather.

    Thanks. Got to agree with you there. Not very practical...especially at that length. Fun to make though.

    I certainly find hidden tang knives to be more comfortable in the hand. I think this would be my favourite style. One can use it all day without discomfort...

    Depends on the use...if you pry on something with 1095, in my experience it will snap faster than 440 stainless which has more flex.
