I've said it hundreds of times and will probably keep on saying it - this is one of my favorite designs to forge and build. Quite some time ago I named it the "Short Occasional Bowie" for lack of anything better. I also have these in my"Fighters" section, and maybe even my San-Maisection! So..go figure.
Anyway, this one was forged from some really nivce Laddered Ws of my own creation and the taekdown feature is facilitated with some century+ old 1903 Wrought Iron.
The handle is what I refer to as "Feather" Walnut - stabilized by K and G.
