Another Recurve Bowie


Recommended Posts

Hello, this one commissioned as a gift for a husband who apparently really liked the Alone bowie I did awhile ago.   Unfortunately I have run out of W-2 and so used 80CRV2 on this one.  I explained to the customer that the hamon would not be pronounced as a result of the alloys but she was agreeable.  Had to use a layer of clay twice as thick to get this, which really isn't a true hamon anyway, but the customer is happy. There is a bunch of alloy banding present in the "soft" area, which looks pretty neat also, but hard to capture in a pic. Clint

Wow, that is beautiful Clint. I love the darker hue of the blade, the spine geometry by the tip, and especially the elegant curve. What kind of wood? What an awesome package!

 Thanks Tom.  The handle is cocobolo.  Sometimes you get lucky and find a highly figured piece. This one also has awesome colors. Clint
