I know it's been a while since I've been on, but I just finished this commission piece.  The customer wanted Bowie and instead of making just a regular one, I opted for something a tad bit different.  I wanted to do a piece that paid homage to the original, but slightly updated.  I came across a few pictures of one that was used during the battle of San Jacinto, Texas.  The lines, shape and overall coolness sealed the deal.  What you see here is my take on that blade, with some subtle changes.  Instead of having 6 to 8 pins for the handle scales, I used 4, along with a brass guard and walnut scales.  The blade is forged from leaf spring.
