    These are just some crummy shop pix but, I'm finishing this one up today. John Cohea and I have been discussing doing a big period-style Bowie so I put this one together and will be sending it out to him tomorrow to work his magic. After that, she's going to Mr. Ward for a real nice pix.

    This Coffin Bowie is has about a 9" long blade of multi-quenched W2 (there are at least 4 hamon lines in the blade) with acid soaked/forged finish flats(all the way back on the full tang as well). The off-set bolsters are jail-bar wrought iron. The handle scales are Weathered Barn Oak with copper liners and pins and textures stainless steel handle bolts. The edges of the barn oak and wrought iron are scalloped.

    J., I'm willing to bet that if you put this knife on a table with 5 of your other knives, this one will be the first one that a knife nut will pick up and fondle. [​IMG]

    This is such an incredible appearing knife. At first glance it looks so simple, and then the more you look at the photos, your appreciation of it grows so much.

    Wonderful work. I hope to see you in Atlanta.

    That is simply stunning. The copper really works with the oak and the hamon is wonderful. I find it beautiful.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate that. I just got her back from John with the new sheath and I'm going to fire it over to Chuck Ward for some pro-photos Monday. This one will be at the Blade Show with me at 12-S.

    Thanks again,
    J.
