    I went looking for a lost tool on a low, dirty shelf in the shop and found a small picture I had drawn sometime in the last two years. I found my tool, finished my project, and grabbed some steel :) Not sure what to call this one yet. It's similar to my Jungle Knife in the handle but the blade is somewhere between a Bowie, a Bolo, and a Seax. No matter what I call it, I like it!!!!! :) Overall it is 17 1/2in long. The blade is 11 3/4inlong tip to handle. I made this from 1/4in thick 5160 with a full flat grind. The tang is drilled out to reduce the weight a bit. Scales are black G10 with a lot of sculpting so it really fits my paw. This one runs about 26oz on my scale. It's big but it's balanced out to be a great chopper and a pretty decent slasher. Like many of my designs it could be that "if I only had one" type knife.

    Best way is to contact me when you see something you like. I don't take orders anymore so when you see something here or posted in the knifemaker's for sale section, grab it while you can :)

    Bill, Have you tried using 89crv2 steel on your knives?

    Haven't tried it. I don't see any real advantage over the 5160 I already use.

    Perfect answer! Especially when you have the heat treat already dialed in.

    Dreaming of a SEAX. The blade from below- stretched to 14", 1/2 less blade to spine, married to the handle below.
