San Mai Bowie

Recommended Posts

You guys got may have seen my recent thread about my power hammer build. Before I built that, I welded this three layer billet by hand. 15n20 outside over a 1084 core. This small Bowie is just shy of 11 inches overall. The handle is ringed gidgee from Australia.

It does look very similar to Alec steele's.  Very nice!! It would be a shame to use it and get it all dirty and scratched

Jim was not known for holding back using his original one at the Sand Bar fracas...having read the account I'd bet he would have used a spoon if that was all he had left---and his opponents would have greatly regretted that he had one!
