My first thru tang!

Apr 21, 2001
This is my first attempt at a thru tang design. The ball on the pommel is actually screwed to the tang.
Blade is 5160 (Next one will be ATS34)
SS gaurd and Pommel, TigerMaple handle, SS pins. 6" blade 11 1/2" OAl.

What do you think?


That's really nice. Aesthetically, I'm not a super fan of the coffin-shaped handle, but I really like the blade shape. Looks like it means business. Looks like would be a very good using blade!

Asi es la vida

Ditto on what Bugs said. The blade shape looks like a great fighting shape. AWESOME!

Wow, that is an awsome design. Nice clean lines, I really like it. Keep up the good work. =]
Coffin handled bowies are some of my favorites. Especially, when they have the very pronounced flare to the butt end. Nothing worse than those bowies with the skinny stick handles. Very nice job on that one!
