I just finished these up this morning.  After seeing me do another Bowie, my friend wanted me to make him a pair of smaller versions.  The blade blanks were forged out from leaf spring scraps I had from previous projects, then shaped, ground, and heat treated.  The brass guards are from some bar stock, and the handle material is walnut.  My friend wanted true coffin style handles, which I haven't tried yet, but these came out nicely.  I beveled the handles to mimic the old style coffins, so the handles now have an octagon cross section and an awesome hand feel.
