Beastly Bowie

Recommended Posts

Finished this today.  10.5 inch blade forged from a 7 layer billet of bandsaw blade, horseshoe rasp and center core of chainsaw bar that hardened nicely. 

 

Guard is a scrap of 300 layer, spacer blade material, and buttcap an endcut from a radial pattern billet I made forever ago. 

 

Handle African blackwood. Through tang construction with a nut welded underside the buttcap to squeeze it all together. 

 

Had to try fullers after seeing Jason Knight grind them into an apocalypse tanto in one of his recent youtube videos. 

 

Thanks for looking,  Clint

Yeah, Jason Knight does some cool designs. I really like that small hidden tang knife video he just did.

 

Your fuller's look like they came out great, and that pattern on the buttcap is cool. Very nice knife you got there.

Thanks gents.  The fullers for me were definitely are nerve racking to grind in, one slip and your likely going to be modifying whatever your original design was.....as this blade his so large and thick It seemed like a good candidate to give it a shot.  Clint
