"Southeast" Bowie W2 & Black Walnut

Recommended Posts

Always hear talk and see photos of the "Southwest" Bowie, but sure dont hear much mention of the "Southeast" or more commonly called "Southern" Bowie.

 

The differences in my view and experience are in the "Southern" Bowie having a fairly straight back or spine, shorter clip, and lower tip. The "Southwest" In my view generally has some upward arch to the spine, and a longer higher tip.

 

I know they are just "names" and share more characteristics then they differ, but I do like to respect those distinctions between the 2.

 

A few quick pics of the "SOUTHEAST" Bowie I finished today ;)

Blade is 10-1/4 x 1-7/8" x .350+ at the ricasso, overall length is 15-1/4", handle is of course Black Walnut.

 

Thanks all!

That certainly is a fine piece of cutlery! I especially like the hamon and the walnut has great depth. Looking forward to seeing more!
