    Hi guys,

    Thought I'd post up my latest creation- shes a hidden tang bowie and is 13" OAL with a 9" blade out of 1/4" 5160 done to 58rc.
    I used nickel silver for the guard and Australian native coolibah burl for the handle, finished with mosaic pins .
    Its the first BIG knife I have tried and also the first hidden tang. I don't think I'll put a hollow grind on anything this size again (took forever to do then try to polish!) but I reckon it looks pretty cool.

    Any comments welcome, good or bad.

    Enjoy,

    Joe.
