Another Bowie

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking of doing another Bowie for a while, but I wanted to do something a little different this time.  I decided to do a through tang construction with a finger spacer.  Here's the result; the blade was forged from some leaf spring, the guard, spacer, and pommel are brass, between the guard and spacer is redwood burl, between the spacer and pommel is spalted tamarind.  The dark lines between the woods and brass is thin leather.  The woods were worked to a decent sheen then coated with tung oil.  The blade has a length of about 10 5/8".
