Fresh From the Shop

Recommended Posts

This one will go to a show with me in a couple of weeks hoping that some reenactment guy will have to have it. I forged this one from 5160 (my favorite large knife steel) leaving forged textures on the flats. The guard was forged from wrought iron that I salvaged from on old wagon tire and etched it to bring out the grain. The handle is stabilized and dyed figured ash which I "borrowed" from my neighbors wood pile. Thanks for looking, guys and feel free to comment.

That is a nice looking knife. Just the right amount of rustic and that S guard is sweet. Good job!

Very nice looking Bowie. Handle shape, blade and guard are all very appealing.
