    A good gent asked me to make a variation of a "Bagwell-style" Bowie to take on a (business... LOL) trip. The blade is 10" of Gas-rig Cable Damascus (alot of that going on in Pa now). The S-guard with "clam shell tips is carbon steel with my "antiqued" finish. The handle is an Amber Stag crown with a 3-piece throat/spacers of laminate damascus sandwiched between two fullered pieces of carbon steel with an antiqued finish. The handle is set with a blued, peened carbon steel pin. The whole thing is almost 16".

    Absolutely fantastic work J... :thumbsup:

    I'm surprised he didn't opt for Bagwell's typical blade catcher style guard though.

    Well, he did originally but, switched to the S-guard. Makes it look more "Neilson"... :manganr:

    Thanks guys, I appreciate that. I'm getting requests to do more of these closer to the Bagwell Hell's Belle-style. I'll post some of those soon.
