A Modern Bowie


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. 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??

Sharp piece of work Gary!  I'm a big fan of Iron wood and Bowies !
