A few new projects.

Recommended Posts

I got a little tangled up in making a couple Cowboy Bowies - one for a customer and one for the Arkansaw Knife Show coming in a few weeks to Little Rock.

Both of the Bowies have Transition Damascus blades. The first one with some highly figured Walnut and the second one with Koa.

Both have hot-blued fittings and are built take down. 

The last one is a San-mai hunter.

Stunning as ever!   I have also enjoyed your latest videos on how the cowboy bowies go together.  Thank you for posting those!

Is the san-mai blade 410/1084 mix?

1095/410. I start with 3/8" 1095 core and 1/4" 410 jacket.

Very nice Karl. That damascus is something else. I love the blade/bevel transition.

Wow that Koa wood sure goes well with your transition damascus! I love those lines; very classy.

Man those are beautiful knives!  I love the way that the transition looks with the darker woods like that.  Those are very elegant knives; gentlemen's knives.

Awesome work! I dig that san mai. The carbon migration makes it look really organic and flowy.

Karl your work never ceases to amaze me...especially that last bowie and the one with the san mai...absolutely amazing

starting with a san mai billet so thick...how long does it take you to grind and profile a blade like that???
