A Modern Bowie


Gary Mulkey

Recommended Posts

Very nice. I like what I can tell of the handle ergonomics. It seems like a natural evolution of that Bowie style.

Nice Gary. Those photos make me want to hold it and examine it closer.

Nice. I've just started on my first Bowie and may have to steal  borrow elements of that handle design. I'm assuming the pip on the butt of the handle is the end on the tang?

The pommel nut screws onto the end of the tang.

Thanks Gary. I figured as much but wanted to check. I don't think I have enough material for a full tang but I think I prefer your hidden tang design. That handle aesthetic is pretty special.

That's a nice knife.  I'd love to have a bowie actually.  I'd like to make my own but I dunno how hard it would be to heat treat lol.

Real nice work Gary!! What are the fittings made from, I am guessing maybe nickel/silver??

C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft
