Tony, those are fantastic. Beautiful and functional all at the same time. I also like your choice of steel.

Do you have a website for those of us who are luddites and don’t have Facebook?

No sir. I do not have a website. I should invest in one, but this might become work rather than a hobby. Thank you.

Hand forged from 52100 steel with brass buttcap and guard. Curly maple and stacked leather for handle.
Ought to make a fine skinner.

That curly maple looks great. As always, a really great knife. Have plans for any more bowie's?

Thank you sir.
I have a few more knives to finish before another Bowie. Those are freelance, off the cuff. That takes to pressure off, and allows this to remain a hobby.

I certainly agree with the comments about the striking curly maple. However, for me, the very first knife is compelling. The lines and grinds just all flow. I love that knife. ::groove::
