    That's a big one BB. 11 incher. I admit I got excited at first myself.

    For anyone that don't have one this is still a very handy size. I carried this size daily here at the office everyday before the IBBB's hit. I still have the sheath and have the urge to carry it now and then.

    Serious business bowie and it looks like Ram Lal did and equally good job on it. I love the way he shapes the end of his tangs.
    Kind of pointed but not too pointed. Just classy to me eyes.

    I think the kami's made all # 2' Liberties just to drive ole bawanna to the rubber room. That one sure looks sweet.
    RockFarm if you break out your CC get it too and send it to me, would ya? If your getting it out might as well make it worth while?

    Another plus for that Bowie is the no recurve on the edge. Makes it wet stone friendly for sharpening.

    I'm sure it's his little bowie I'm wearing daily now days. The super thin one.

    I think we still called him Ram Lal at that time but I recognize the butt of the big bowie listed here. Love the shape of it.

    I love this man very much.

    Glad to see the Liberty Series in production.

    The top of the guard and the cho should be aligned on each of the liberty series knives. This is a design feature of particular use in fencing. See early posts on the LS for fuller explanation. The guard on this knife is too high.

    Thanks Ndog. I do believe my tone above was unduly petulant.

    A hearty welcome to Ram Kumar. The knife above is a well crafted piece in its own right. The deep guard as crafted is well suited to trapping and binding. The cho is beautiful and artistic.

    For Ram Kumar's future consideration, if the cho and the guard are aligned it can create "happy accidents" where an opponent's blade is directed into the cho. This gives powerful leverage for an opportunistic disarm or even a break. On this particular knife both the alignment of the guard and cho, and the overhanging lip on the blade side of the cho preclude such happy accidents.

    On this knife, the probability of happy accidents could be increased by filing down the blade side lip of the cho, but this would come at the expense of reducing the beauty of the cho. I wouldn't recommend filing down the guard on this knife. The inward turn at the ends and the depth make it an excellent trapping guard as it is. Filing it down, while it would increase the probability of happy accidents, would loose a lot of trapping effectiveness. Overall, it would be a net loss. If the cho were higher and aligned the guard would have full trapping effectiveness and also facilitate happy accidents.
