Overtime Bowie

Overtime my belly has gotten bigger and my bowies have gotten smaller. There was a time when my bowie blades were as long or longer than this bowie at 13" overall. This one has a 8 1/2" 52100 blade and an ebony handle. I salvaged 1/4" steel from a salvaged car part and used that to make the S guard. The other fittings are wrought iron.

I'm looking for a plunge line on your grind, but I don't see it ,,,, what kind of grind is on that blade I like it a lot.

The blade was hand forged to shape down to the edges on the bevels. Basically when I grind I grind off the outside layer that I forged. The grind is a flatish convex. I don't need a plunge line.
