    Hey all,

    I am extremely pleased to report that this amazing bowie - the Rebel Fighter - is on its way to me as we speak.

    Stephan had this at Blade so it was photographed by the master Coop and there is another fantastic shot from Stephan's website.

    These are both great shots but you can be assured I will take more when it gets here.

    The blade length is 9,5 inches and of course its handforged by Stephan from W2 steel.

    Handle is desert ironwood and guard is stainless steel. My first real bowie!

    The micarta handled one at the bottom is another version that got me thinking about a bowie from Stephen, I loved it the minute I saw it....

    However, that one has an 8 inch blade and I wanted 9.5 inches as Bill Bagwell reckons that's the minimum length to get the maximum leverage out of a bowie when executing snap cuts. I figure Bill should know!

    I'm glad your excited.

    This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite knives to make, the subtle recurve of the blade just comes out so sexy.

    I have to thank Les Robertson for the inspiration on this particular model, I appreciate all the help.

    Woohoo! It pitched up today...... man, its an awesome piece. Really quick and the handle is incredibly comfortable. I really think Stephan is one of the best value makers around right now.

    Here some of MY crappy pics!

    A shot with flash to show that incredible hamon...

    One without flash. The sheath is very well made and works like a bomb.

    See how that handle just blends into the guard? Totally seamless!
