Recommended Posts

Nice pic of the old and new together, gives a good idea of all the effort you put into it!

Thanks everyone. I'm glad that you had the patience & interest to stick with such a long WIP thread.

 

It seems that I was very timely in my trip to the museum as the original knife had just been taken out of it's temporary display and not put in it's permanent one yet so I had a chance to actually hold it. WHAT AN HONOR! For a guy like me who loves the historic Bowies it doesn't get much better, especially with a knife like this that has such an historic past.

Like I said, a true artifact knife! Its really special to be able to see how a worn, well used antique like the original would've looked when fresh and new!

Very Nice! Thanks for sharing. Seems like I remember seeing the blueprints for Bowie No.1 at Riverside Machine for sale several years ago. Does anyone know if the blueprints are still available ?
