 My latest bowie.  Customer wanted 'the biggest bowie' I could make him.  This one is 20" long overall.  The blade is O-1 tool steel as is the guard and handle spacer.  The pommel is made from a piece of 1095 (railroad track).  Handle materials are imitation ivory and Cocabola.  The knife weighs in at 2lbs 10oz.

A bowie.  All the metal fittings are Damascus and handle is Cocabola

This is a Sgian Dubh for a friend
who is a member of clan Lamont.
The Handle is mahogany...the hand is the sigil of 
clan Lamont.



Here is a shot of my railroad track spike knife


This is the 3rd knife I've made

Here's a picture of a Tanto-style blade. 
This was my first attempt.


This is a dirk-type knife I made.
The blade is based on standard Scottish dirk design.

This is a detail of the back of the blade, 
I really liked how this ended up.


" So passed the sword of the barrow-downs, work of Westernesse.  But glad would he have been to know its fate who wrought it slowly long ago in the North-kingdom, when the Dunedain were young, and chief among their foes was the dread realm of Angmar, and its sorcerer king,  No other blade, not though mightier hands had wielded it, would have dealt that foe a wound so bitter, cleaving the undead flesh, breaking the spell that held his unseen sinews to his will. " 

from 'The Return of the King' by J.R.R. Tolkien
