    Lovely work, buddy!The middle one reminds me of those old 30's and 40's bowie-hunter models. I like all of them.

    That's what I thought to David, kind of like a Marbles or a Morseth style, they also remind me a little bit like a Randall that's been re-handled by Behring.

    very true, John. Scott definitely has his own style.

    You're right, Scott, they do have that look. Is this the bowie I heard you speak of, or are you working on a different bowie knife?

    I think that's what I like most about his work. Classic, nostalgic features, with amazing fit & finish that all comes together in its own way. I'm honored that you guys post you're work in this little subforum

    I had actually made these blades in early 2014 but had not gotten around to doing anything with them until now, I finally had finished up all my hunting knife orders and and had a little time to play around with other blade designs other than drop point hunters. I also wound up getting side tracked with a class for work for about a year which didn't help much. Anyhow I made like 50-60 drop points in a row and just started getting tired of making them so that's why I'm doing all these other clip points and up swept designs lately. However after these I do want to start making some smaller and a little bit simpler design hunters to cell on the forum here.

    Both of those bowies have a resemblance to Randall bowies but they look kind of like the ones Behring re-handles.

    Thanks Rob, I'm just finishing this one up this morning, I'll be starting on the other two knives a little later on this week and then to start on the sheaths.

    Thanks Scott, Mack that is a 9" blade on this one that smaller bowie in the previous photo is a 7 1/2" blade and a upswept hunter with the brow tine handle is a 6" blade.
