This was a recent commission for an old customer, one of my first customers as a matter of fact.
It's a reproduction of a Sheffield produced Bowie, circa 1840.
The short clip blade is 12" long and 2' wide, hand forged from spring steel. As requested by the client, the clip was left unsharpened.
The guard and pommel cap are forged from wrought iron. They were cut from an antique picket pin I picked up in Montana where my great, great grandfather and his brothers raised horses for the U. S. Cavalry.
The handle is deer antler, the sheath, cowhide.
To duplicate this knife would cost $180.
