A Very Nice Bowie
« on: January 02, 2018, 03:49:25 PM »
This piece was made upon request for a good friend of mine. The maker of the knife is from North Idaho. My friend then asked me to make up a sheath for it. It is one fine knife and tough as hell. You could beat a full grown moose plumb to death with the handle and never even touch him with the blade. I am gonna miss having it around the place now that the sheath is done.

Me too, and that heavy handguard.   The sheath is very well done also.

Not to mention the brass spine. Don't see that much anymore.

I have never been a big fan of large knives, but I do agree that is one fine specimen housed in a very nice case!

Sometimes you just need a big do most anything from skinning to cutting wood knife. I'd have preferred a drop point but there's nothing wrong with that. I damn sure wouldn't turn my nose up at it.

Good attention to the particulars Hawg, but I expect no less from you. I in fact only draw further attention to the issue out of respect. ;)

You know, I grew tired of my initial research on the brass spined Bowie. The arguments put forth by the reliable historians reminded me of college professors and preachers. In other words, "By God, I am right, and you are for damn sure going to see it my way."

I am starting feel like a broken record, but dang, I sure do like opening up this page and seeing the responses from you men! THANKS ONCE AGAIN!

Keep in mind, this knife was commissioned with a historical interest as the primary driving force. The feller that owns it likely won't ever do much with it. It will never be a woods knife or daily user. The days for a knife like this are long gone.
