Bowie in process

I'm working on a Bowie knife. I want to do some kind of carving on the antler crown yet and it needs a sheath. Been a fun project so far

Figured I would share

Nice work, carbon steel or stainless? What do you get for a knife? I know it depends on the size but for a 3 inch hunter blade for example. Do you forge the blades or cut them out of stock and grind and temper?

Sweet! One discipline I could never master. Just bought a damascus at the Oaks show.

You do great work!

Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!

A gun will get you thru times of no money better than money will get you thru times of no gun.
