I've never seen anyone attach the tang to the handle in that manner before, did you come up with that yourself? I think I might try that method on my next project.

I'm sure that I didn't make that up, I think I got it from this instructable:

boiled linseed oil. Available in the paint section of most hardware stores.

The handle seems a little disproportional compared to the blade but this is only a matter of taste. I really enjoyed your video, it contains all the information needed for this job.Nice!
