Thought I'd try posting a pic here. Its a knife I recently made after considerable personal research on handle shapes. I call it the Little SOB - SPIRIT OF BOWIE. aka Sawn-Off Bowie aka Son Of Bowie. Its is only 8inches OAL, 3.5inch blade, O1 carbon tool steel, flat ground, distal tapered, top edge is razor sharp. Satin handrub. Handles - black linen Micarta lightly contoured, fully polished with SS fittings, pinwork which I call "Stellar" randomly placed on both sides. The tang is fully tapered and the balance is on the index finger groove. I hope I don't offend any Bowie enthusiasts or purists with my Bowie references but the idea was to cram a lot of practical Bowie features into a small knife. Thanks for looking. Jason.
