Hybrid Vest fighter

Hey guys! I have been pretty busy with orders, so I haven't had much time for new designs. I finally got a chance to make one I have been wanting to do for a while.

It's sort of a vest bowie size, but more of fighter. I decided to go rustic with the antique finished 1075 blade and some highly figured wagon wheel wrought iron for the guard.

The spacer and menuki are hammer copper. The clip is pretty close to sharp, but not sharpened. The blade has a nice distal taper to the point and is balanced right behind the guard. It feels very lively in hand. OAL is 10 5/8" w/ a 5 7/8" blade that is right at .265" at the thickest point.

The sheath is a simple sash carry style.

Let me know what you guys think.

That looks good.

 

Something about black and copper that I can't resist.

I do like the proportions of that... small, yet has a massive look to it at the same time.
