    All purpose bowie {SOLD PF}


    ADVERTISEMENT
    This a new Prototype I just finished up. I am calling it the A.P.B. or All Purpose Bowie.
    This is a dressed up one with stabilized curly Koa, a tapered tang and O1 tool steel.
    The Koa is hand finished to 2500grit and has super character and chatoyancy that is very hard to capture on camera.
    I attached a video to try and capture the Koa a bit better.
    Here are the specs

    OAL - 9"
    Blade - 4.75"
    Steel - .250" O1 tool steel (Heat treat done in my digitally controlled Evenheat kiln)
    Handle - Stabilized Curly Koa, hand rubbed finish to 2500 grit.
    Features - Tapered tang, thumb grooves,carbon fiber pins and a copper tube.
    Sheath - 11oz leather, hand tooled and stitched
    Price - SOLD $375 SOLD
    I accept Paypal or postal money order
    Thanks for looking!!

    Here is the video link

    Thanks for the kind words guys!
    I am very pleased with how the design and finish came out on this one. The Koa really has to be held to be appreciated!!

    Ben,

    There's just something about this blade that keeps calling me back to look at it. Knife budget is blown all to hell at present and not exactly lacking for cutting tools but this one is one very nice and compelling blade.

    All purpose blades don't come any better than this.
