    Finished up this large Bowie today :) 16in overall with an 11in blade tip to handle. The scales are Macassar Ebony with stainless pins. I used flat ground bevels with some taper to the blade along with a skeletal tang to reduce the weight to 18oz.

    It looks a little like a Yataghan.

    Nice

    Perfect amount of recurve on that one. Has some beautiful flow to the cutting edge
