Bog oak and copper are a great combination, and your style is always great!

I don't know. I really like the whole package, but I'm not sure it falls into the "Bowie" category. The shape of the blade is reminiscent of the Bowie, but there are enough stylistic differences to make me either give this a separate name, or differentiate it somehow.

I hereby dub this the "Cleland Katar", or is it proper to reverse that, as in "Katar Cleland"?

:D
