This project has definitely sparked my interest and imagination.

One pin left for the handle, it'll secure the tang and the handle together. I was going to do 2 but I think one in the back section will be just right. This thing will have a total of 15 parts, 9 of those being pins (2 unseen guide pins ins the ferrule/guard/handle if you're coming up short;)).

Trying to decide between these two images for the spine.

Apparently these are called "underline flourishes"? A subtle one of these down the spine might look classic.

Or a card suit, (Each one rotated so they're in a line instead of side by side).

Opinions?

Personally, I think 'The original Bowie Knife' is always good, but short of that, the card suit seems a tad nicer...

I'll be getting back after them very soon. I'm shaping the 2 Campers and Cowbells this week, after that I'll work these into the groove. I forget that summer is hell on my shop time!
