    This Bowie was commissioned by a customer who saw a similar one I had done last year. I had traced it out, so I used that to make a pattern, but tweaked on it a bit. It has a wider handle, which I like better.

    The steel is 1/4" 80CrV2 steel, with TeroTuf handle scales and flared stainless steel tube rivets. The top bevel is a false edge.

    I played with the Kydex also, bringing it up onto the handle more than I usually do. It's fitted with a Combat Loop for belt carry.

    It's a sizeable sucker, with a blade that's 10 7/8" from point to choil and an overall length just under 16 1/2". Balance point is about at the touchmark.

    The customer commented, "Very nice. Big yet light. Good job." :)
