Tiger's Coffin


Recommended Posts

Been working on this bowie (still am), got mega inspired by Matt Lamey's bowies. Always wanted to do a coffin handle too, but hate how they are dead straight (haha) so I swept it a little. Hot punched the slot for the guard, then hot fit it to the tang. Pulled a piece of curly tiger stripe maple from my private stash, nicest maple I have ever seen personally.

I dig your bowie a lot Sam. I am with you on not liking the straightness of coffin handles, so I like the sway you added.

I love curly maple too. I bought 7 board feet of it last year, so I have plenty to make handles out of for quite some time.

That's nice- I think the sweep really makes it a better working design.
