Had to rush to get 2 more done for a show in Seattle last weekend. Just got back and figured you all would like to see what I did.

First a large Raised clip Bowie. 11.5" blade and 5,460 year old bog oak for the handle. The Hamon on this one came out GREAT. Then the balance on this was spectacular if I do say so myself.



Then a neat little persian inspired bowie with feather pattern damascus and damascus fittings. The handle is a piece of artifact Walrus ivory, Natives used it to make fishhooks.



Hope you enjoy.

Thanks all. Actually they did not come back from the show. The bowie sold before the show and the damascus piece was left with the show promoter who is also a purveyor. Was a great show.

Thanks again. I think that bowie or a derivation of it will be a regular from now on . It came out even better than I had thought. It lasted a total of 30 seconds after I showed the first person the day before the show. Nice to know the show was a success even before it began.
