Bowie Knife Restoration

  • This "Original Bowie Knife" was my father's. It's been on the to do list for a long time. My father passed many years ago when I was a teenager and I have very little of his, so it's all the more special. This knife was lost for a long time and unfortunately lost its sheath along the way.

    I'm pretty sure this knife is from the 60's or 70's. Made in Japan. It's not the fanciest knife nor the best looking, but it's sentimental to boot. Time for some loving and restoration!

    На ремень его не повесить. В кармане носить? 🤔

    The leather handle replacement gives me some ideas for my worn out old Estwing hatchet!

    You obviously have the understanding and technique to restore an ole knife.  Why not design and build a new. original knife?
