I really like Maple Burl stabilized/dyed grey. It looks like angry storm clouds so, I just kind of took that motif and went with it on this one. I hope you like it.

This Bowie knife has an 8" blade of hand-rubbed 5160 high carbon steel with forge marked flats and an etched finish, 1/4" thick at ricasso. The offset S-guard is forged from wrought iron and etched. The handle is stabilized grey Maple Burl wood with a throat of alternative ivory and a black spacer. The handle is finished off by a pair of etched, high carbon steel pins. The tooled leather blade sheath has a "three-window" grey snake skin inlay. The total length for this knife is 13 1/4".
Price, with leather sheath; $350.00, plus shipping.

Now I've just got to get my membership squared away to post a decent picture. Sorry 'bout that.

hhmm, that's nice; I like the 'smoky' appearance of the handle. The guard is intersting but for my taste it's a bit bigger than I like them with that sleek a blade ; I tend to associate guards like that with the 'big old mountain man' Bowies .
But very nice none the less :biggthump
