    Hi Gents


    The blade for this harpoon point style Bowie has a core of 1095 steel laminated with white paper steel cheeks. The blade length is 185mm, the blade thickness is 5mm on the spine and the overall length of the knife is 318mm. The single branch carbon steel hand guard has a patterned surface, has been gun blued and is backed by a single nickel silver spacer. The handle is Macassar ebony and is held to the tang with one 4mm stainless pin.
    The double welted leather sheath has been dyed walnut brown with a black frame on the front panel inlaid with faux ostrich leather. A Sam brown stud is at the throat to keep the sheath in position for a sash carry and at the sheaths tip there is a single eyelet to attach a lanyard if required. I would like to thank Joe Paranee for that idea, I saw a film he had posted on YouTube with a sash carry sheath he had made with a hole for a static line attachment. I thought it was a cracking idea, I hope you don't mind me borrowing it for this sheath Joe.
    Thank you for taking the time to look, all of your comments and critique are very welcome.

    Steve
