I’m calling this one “The Jankster”. I took off Saturday from custom orders to create something new. I’ve always liked big knives and Bowies but I make what my customers ask for. I have quite a few custom orders for Christmas, but I needed to let my creative juice flow, I made the sheath after Church Sunday. It’s 1095 I have it tempered to 61.5 hrc, the OAL is 11 inches tip to walnut handle is 6 inches. I love the way the handle fits in my hand, that’s my favorite hand to use on knives.
I wish I had this knife in Viet Nam!

I'm not usually a bowie knife man, but that sir is a beautiful tool I'd be happy to carry

Thanks bro, I love the way the handle fits in my hand. I think I'm going to design more blades with that type handle I've never had a knife feel more comfortable in my hand ever.

Thanks all I appreciate it very much. The balance is perfect however; the best thing about it is the way it fits in the hand. I love the handle so much I made another knife with that same handle.
