This is a bowie that I just delivered to a client. The blade and guard/butt cap are from steel of building 1 and 2 of the World Trade Center. The handle is Horse Chestnut. It was the last tree of 13 trees that George Washington planted. He planted one for each colony. This one was planted for the Georgia colony. The gold inlay is 24kt.


I test all of my knives before finishing. This one I used to chop a few 2x4's with and a few soda pop cans. With most properly done forged bowies you should be able to cut at least 10 2x4's and still split a hair. With knowledge of the knife you can do better. I can chop about 30 or so boards with mine and still cut slivers off a single hair. Again, that is not me tooting my horn, that is to explain what a proper knife should do. I think I show some cutting on my utube channel, if not yall tell me and I will figure out where they are at and get a link or something to it.

Beautiful knives !! I made the mistake of looking at the photo gallery on your website. Took me 2 hours to wipe up all the drool off my keyboard .... amazing.
