I've been working a bit on a big bowie that will be ready for ICCE in Fort worth. The steel is some W2 that I got from my fellow Forged in Fire competitor Rob Singleton, clay quenched for a good hamon. The oosik was my door prize at the last ICCE in Kansas City, and I've been waiting on a big bowie to use it on. This is also my first penny style guard.
Dirty pic, pre final polish.
The old Raymond Richard backlit profile trick.
A video view "in the white."
Handle mock up with the fittings blued.
Glued the final assembly up late last night. Should have some finished pics and likely a video over the next few days.
