The Vintage Bowie Knife and some Leather Work

The Bowie knife posted below was a recent custom order that left my
shop, and the blade measured out at about 8 inches long with a slow
tapered forward swedge/clip.

The tang was hidden and runs through the entire length of the
aged black walnut handle and was preened over a solid steel
but cap.  The hatching on the handle was done by hand as well.

The guard is of steel as well and was forged and hand fitted.

The sheath was hand stitched and antiqued.

New Leather work was added to the "Available Leather Pieces Page"
All of my leather tooling and hand carved line work is done
one at a time and by hand.
Here is a close up of the current available piece.

Thank you
