    I've got a really nice camp knife with a recurve bolo style blade. 15 3/4in overall with a 103/8in blade tip to handle. The blade is 2 1/16 at it's widest section. Blade steel is 1/4in thick 5160 with my usual differentially hardening. Weight is 16oz. Tang is tapered and scales are black Tero Tuf with stainless steel tube fasteners. Will come with a black Kydex sheath that will accept a large size Tek Lok. Price is $375 shipped in the US. 5CC9CEFD-E3CE-456D-806D-9F2CB76EF930.jpeg 312B92F4-6F27-424D-A4CA-E2BA77D61828.jpeg

    Bowie in 1/4in 5160 with green canvas micarta scales. The blade is flat ground with a convex ground edge with final sharpening done at 20 degrees. Weight is 22oz. Overall it is 16 1/2in with an 11in blade tip to handle. Sheath is black Kydex. False edge is thin but not sharpened. This was a light user for me to play with the edge treatment so it is priced accordingly at $300 ***Sold***shipped in the US. 2C113C7C-7DF3-48FD-8C3F-38480CE0555B.jpeg 14A3D18E-3027-4803-B5CA-1C63E283D494.jpeg

    The above poster and I have (or once had) owned and used more Siegle knives than probably just about anyone else. For any newer members out there pondering either of these, you will not find a better (meaning more functional) designed knife for real-world use. Heat treatment and ESPECIALLY primary and edge geometries are spot on, as is the quality of construction, both knife and sheath.
    Fancier absolutely exists, but not better.

    You deserve all the praise you get as anyone who owns a knife of yours will attest.

    I own probably 15 of Bills Knives and use them hard. I’ve used them for hunting and primitive survival. They are my go to Knives. William Martin started my addiction and once I owned one I just couldn’t resist more. High quality spot on heat treat. Perfect edge grinds and comfortable handles

    I love the look of the handles on these you can almost feel the comfort, and the angle of the handle to the blade is spot on well done sir!
