    For your consideration is this Vest Bowie in 1095/Stabilized Curly Poplar. The curly poplar has some of the boldest figure I've encountered. The blade was sanded to 1200 grit and etched to reveal a vivid hamon. Both the spine and the ricasso are rounded - the stainless spacer was coined and heat blued for contrast. The handle is contoured for superb ergonomics. I hope you like it! The first "I'll take it," PM, or email gets it. $775 delivered CONUS. Paypal preferred to [email protected]. Thanks for viewing and all comments are welcome.
