    This is a Jason Knight M.S. Charleston Bowie I just received from Les Robertson. It has a 9 3/4" 1084 hand rubbed satin finish blade. The guard is made from wrought Iron from the original gates going into Charleston SC. with a stunning presentation grade Desert Ironwood handle. The fit and finish is awesome!

    Superb work Jason! Thank you Les! :D

    Me? My eyes are drawn to that curvy hollow under the ricasso. Very unconventional.

    What part is missing from the gates, Jason? LOL!

    Good for you, Les, and Jason, and now us. :D

    The blade looks so clean and slick while the guard and the handle looks so much of characters!
    IMVHO the single pin looks like a drop of dew on a murky surface, CMIIAW!
    It makes me full of ooh and aah :thumbup:

    Coop -- you are right. Jason does a few neat tricks when building his knives and what you noticed is certainly one that is quite kewl.

    WOW what a great knife the lines on that knife are so sweet only jason can pull off those lines it takes a level of confidence to do the bottom of the ricasso like that . very cool Jason.

    Funny Dave I had to get a closer pic of the ricasso area from Les because I needed to know how the line would tie together further on with the curve of the handle.

    I had never seen a ricasso arc down like that before. The pic I got still left me unsure of that line extending on to the handle but I said to myself...it's Jason it's got to be

    spot on and sure enough it is!

    Thank you all for your comments! I never made the knife but hearing your enthusiasm helps to sustain my, according to family and friends, wacky obsession with knife

    collecting!
