Big Antiqued Bowie

This finish took awhile to become popular for me but, everyone seems to love it now. I'm doing a ton of blades with the boiled-mustard look. Here's a Bowie I just finished for a gent where all the fittings match the blade as well...


This Big Bowie has a 10" blade forged from 5160 high carbon spring steel, edge-quenched with an antiqued/boiled mustard finish. The fullered oval guard and threaded pommel have also been treated with the same finish. The handle is Desert Ironwood Burl with a throat of African Black Ivory wood and is separated by a brass spacer. The knife comes with a tooled leather blade sheath with strap and loop by Paul Long and has an overall length of 16".

I really like this one. I believe it may be my favorite piece of yours so far.
