really nice knife; reminds me of a scagel, albeit with some different handle materials. coincidentally, i'm trying to make a scagel style knife now :)

Thank you. A couple years ago I made a scagel influenced knife in a Gil Hibbens class. This is the first Bowie after Gil’s class so it does have that influence but not as much curve on the spine as in Gil’s class.

...Second use of sambar. All the stats are the same as the original posted knife except the wood in this spacer is corrugata burl. No sheath yet.
