In another WIP I did my best to make my very first Bowie knife. Or my interpretation of a Bowie knife. The knife is almost complete, so it is time to make a sheath. For all that struggle with leather sheaths, I will do my best to chronicle this sheath build in a WIP/build along. If anyone...
It has been some time since I posted a finished knife. Here is a new one. I call it a "small hunter". I have made several with this pattern and I sell quite a few of them. This one is made from 1075 high carbon steel. It has brass bolsters and pins. Amber dyed jigged bone for scales. Red G10 liners. Theme was "orange". Orange thread on the sheath, orange colored sheath, orange colored handle.
Here is another small hunter. 1075 high carbon, brass bolsters and pins, yellow g10 liners. Theme was "yellow".
A special thank you to DanF. At least, I hope it was DanF. I think it was him that gifted to me the scales. If I remember correctly, cherry burl. I think it came from his yard. I am horrible at remembering stuff. If I am mistaken, someone please correct me.
Here is the latest creation from my shop. I don’t name all my patterns but this one is named “Duck”. 6.5 inches overall. Made from 1075. Black G10 bolsters with stabilized spalted maple handles. Brass pins. Medium brown sheath with dark brown braiding and fully lined.
