Big honkin' bowies!!!!


Recommended Posts

A couple of my recent bowies. Both have forged W2 blades. The big knife has a 13 1/1 inch blade with a hamon, 1000 grit finish, forged wrought iron fittings, Sambar stag handle and a Paul Long sheath with Nile crocodile skin inlay.

The "small" knife has an 11 inch blade with a Spanish notch, 600 grit hand rubbed finish, lightly cold blued 1018 fittings, Sambar stag handle and a Paul Long sheath with inlay from a VERY big ostrich.

Honka Honka!

 

I like 'em both, clean lines. The second one is my favorite, though. B)

Thanks, Alan. I figured that every smith has to do at least one Musso sized knife and one long dueling bowie with a spanish notch at some point, so I did both at the same time. :D
