Rattlesnake Bowie

Recommended Posts

One of my prouder ones. Blade is forged from a farrier's rasp, fileworked, fileworked copper guard, and curly koa for the handle, with brass pins. Just about a foot long if I remember correctly. The sheath is dyed leather, with rattlesnake skin. Southern Pacific Rattlesnake I believe. Experimenting around with a lightbox, not the best results yet but I'll get it up to snuff eventually.

Thanks guys!


Like the work and for some reason really like the chainmaile backdrop.

I've found it really makes the best background I have access to. My guess is it is the same light reflection as the blade (dark-light contrast) so the right lighting medium for the knife is also the right lighting for the background.

...Or maille just plain looks cool.

I do like it Caleb, geometry looks good, like the guard filework, and pins look flush/round. Nice stuff there, sheath and handle colors!
