    They look great by the way!
    I mainly use N690,these are 6mm thick.
    The tangs are threaded,and I attach a split thread bar to that via 3mm pins.
    This assembly threads into the handle tube.
    I make everything in house from steel stock,quite labor intensive,a lot of machining

    Yes, it seems like a lot of work. What about strength? Any issues?
    Do you have a website?

    the blade will break long before the handle/blade interface.
    i've been doing HH knives for a few years,and i've tested the knives in "normal" use,viz,chopping batonning,gouging with the tip.
    i "draw" the hardness on the stub tangs and spines of these knives,even though i use stainless alloys.
    i do have a website,IG and FB
