Latest knife- Bowie

I just recently finished my second Bowie knife.  I’m learning more about fit up with hidden tangs and dealing with guards.  I used a technique I read on the forums by drilling out the inside of the antler and using the marine putty.  I forged a s shaped guard for it but it was not very tight fit so I used brass.  It’s 13 inch blade, 150 layer Damascus, with red stag handle. Pictures below are right after fitup without final sharpening.

Knife and sheath certainly compliment each other. Either on their own would be fantastic but together they make a very handsome package.

The ability to do comes with doing.

Thanks Clint, I appreciate the feedback too.  I didn’t have any templates or anything so I used a set of French curves to design the clip point.   I would be interested in other ways of doing them, I read a few threads in the forums but haven’t done any extensive research on Bowie design.  Just by seeing examples it seems there is a lot of variety.
