Don't keep me in suspense too long though, I have patience issue's ya know?
I guess my work here is done.
I did inquire about a smaller size bowie and it was very well received. I don't think hundreds have been sold. 100 at most probably more like 60 or 70. The first batch of my dream design was 18 knives which I thought was very brave of auntie to have produced in case they didn't fly. Well fly they did very quickly. The first batch had short 3 1/2" handles, about 7 to 7 1/2" overall.
Some mentioned a longer handle for folks with big hands and all since the first 18 have been the longer handle by about an inch...
Here ya go:
The upper one is the original 10" (5" blade, 5" handle).
The middle one is 7.5" (4" blade, 3.5" handle).
The lower one is 8" (4" blade, 4" handle).
[The blades on the bottom two are identical; the original was shrunk down to 80% horizontal, and 90% vertical.]
Bawanna was asking about the original Bawanna Bowie design mock-ups, so here's the related thread:
...Steve! Maybe you could help me out with a picture of my dream BDC set? I want a matching set of 3, one smaller and one larger than the original haha kidding of course...kinda. I do actually want that set but I can doctor the pics myself.
What I've been dreaming about is a "dui chirra" version of a BDC, and that I don't think I could photoshop
I'm sorry, but 7.5" to 8" is just too small in my opinion. They would be the size of a kagas katne and biltong.
I'd like to see these come in at around 12''.....hunting knife size.
