Closing in on this one. Hereís the blade after final polish and etch. Have the guard and spacer done and glued together, and the butt cap fit. All thatís left is the coffee etch, a final test fit with the nail finial, and then glue.

That looks awesome! Are you going to torture test it before or after the show to make sure it holds up?

Definitely not lol. I trust my process and skills, have confidence in my work, and want my customer to get this one in perfect condition.

Today is Texas Independence Day, and a fitting occasion to finish this knife project. When I say I am patriotic, be clear that my loyalty is to Texas first.

Iíll summarize the knife here, although there is more detail further up the thread.
-1836 layer Damascus with Powell nails
-nail Damascus guard
-Sea of Mud grape shot spacer
-1836 silver half dollar
-Sam Houston Oak
-Sea of Mud harness decorations
-14Ē overall with a 9Ē blade

Kenny Rowe is working on leather, and this knife will be available at the ICCE show.

That’s a beautiful knife, glad I was able to be just a small part of it. Please let us know who or where it ends up.

I had this one professionally photographed, Iíll add that to this thread just close the loop once everything comes in.

In the meantime, I got a very nice surprise by winning Best Bowie from the Knifemakers Guild. For those of you not familiar with the guild, itís the longest standing Knifemaking organization, and all of the great ones were in there. Also got elected to the board of directors, humbling.

Since last year show was canceled, they just used last yearĎs awards, so the dates are wrong. I have nothing nice to say about that, LOL.
