Look at what I found

Cleaned the shop the other day and found half dozen Knife blades that I did
about 5 or 6 years ago and never finished, thy are made from SS 440C & ATS34. Thy are all Bowie's and were made for a Purveyor ? that said he could sell all I could make but needed SS so I went to the shop and started them then found out that He was full of S!!! so much for Purveyors.
Here is the first one
440C heat treat by Mr Paul, 9" blade, 14" over all. hand rubbed finish, NS fittings Sambar Stag handle, The front of the guard is stippled.
Now I know that SS is not the material of choice for Bowie's but I can't just through them away.
It is listed in fixed blade sales. Gib

Cool Gib, like the way the butt and guard filework matches the stag handle.

Really nice looking bowie, Gib. I see nothing wrong with a SS knife. I have made several SS bowies, as per the customers preference.
