Sounds like a plan is coming together!!
I'd vote for maker's choice.Count me in. I've never made a bowie knife yet. I have 3 started, 2 damascus and 1 san-mai, that I haven't had time to finish. Are we thinking full tang or hidden tang? Or maker's choice? I've been thinking I'd design a full tang bowie to put in the line up.
I think that's a good idea. I'll accept the challenge to make a Bowie. It will be a full tang.How would everyone feel about this: Let’s keep this a maker’s choice event but we will issue a bowie challenge for those wishing to accept the challenge. For those who do not like making bowies they can still do any other knife with no worries. Everyone understands going in that for some, (like me) this WILL be a stretch of their skills so everything in the knife you receive may not be perfect but it will be the best the maker can do with the project. What say you?
