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 hammered 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.

The sheath is a sash carry style in hand stitched veg tan leather.


Here are the specs.


OAL - 10 5/8"

Blade - 5 7/8" tip to guard

Steel - 1075 with an antique finish

Fittings- Hammered copper spacer and menuki (both sides), wrought iron guard (from antique wagon wheel)

Handle - Black Ito wrap with hemp underwrap, soaked in Marine grade epoxy for a solid handle with a natural look.

Sheath - Hand stitched veg tan leather, IWB/sash carry.

Price - $675 + $15 Priority Insured shipping

Paypal or postal money order preferred
