  • Forging a 50 cm long Bowie knife based on the historical Smithsonian Bowie knife. I made this knife in commission.
    The knife is forged from 5061 steel. Hardened and differential tempered. The wood on the handel is Ebony wood. the blacking solution I use is called Bernax.

    That is a beautiful Bowie! I also really like Bronkhorst Damascus Bowie knife.. the one with the big hand guard. He makes them to order from WA state! I'll be ordering one as soon as I can cough up the 1,500 hundred it costs 😣
