Bjorn Gylfason Posted March 17 Share Posted March 17 I have found a new challenge for both my non existent photographing skill and my poor phone. Shiny surfaces in layers apparently are too much for both as I just can't capture the transparency and colours of the rams horn to do it any justice. I would like to blame Joshua States for this one as I've been looking st his frame handle thread for a long time and finally just had to try it out The idea was to make a modestly sized bowie with a bit of flair, something that would suit a riverboat poker player of dubious standing The blade is W2 steel, 17,5cm long, hollow ground with a 6mm thick back rib and the knife has an overall length of 29,5cm Bolster is several pieces of brass, each fitted tightly to the tang and staked in place The grip has a two piece brass frame the got a bit of filework inside and out as the rams horn scales ended up being slightly more translucent than I anticipated. scales are attached with peened brass pins I might need to get someone with better skills to photograph it once I've cleaned it up properly, made a sheath for it and decided wether or not I should bother with bringing out the hamon in the blade 14 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
