My son has been after me for years to make him a large bowie and as much as I dislike large knives I think this one turned out OK. This is his 42nd birthday present; just a little late. I forged this from 1/4 X 1 1/2 inch 5160 and added a rosewood handle. The fixtures are made from an old wagon wheel etched and a little gun blue to give it an antique look. The trouble is, I have three sons.
