Re: Anyone collect Bowies?

The stamp is very worn and can`t make it out. Faith is marked on the blade If it isn’t too much trouble, could you post some photos of it and maybe give some dimensions? That is the same type that I tried to emulate in my build and is my favorite style of Bowie by far. ::nod:: Here’s my attempt: F8...

I keep coming back to this post and looking at this knife because I think you did a really great job. ::tu:: Me too!

WW2 M1 Bayonet (Union Fork & Hoe) for the Garand & an army issued Jewish scriptures book printed in 1942.

Too bad it’s not the complete Old Testament; it’s missing Daniel 9, Isaiah 53 and the like.
