    Wow, that is a nice spread! That one on the bottom is particularly spectacular.

    Those are some really nice Bill Bagwell knives. I'd love to be able to handle them.

    What is different about that knife (and not often seen in these older knives) is a Damascus hilt.

    Interesting, is that despite the similar appearances, all four have distinctly different “feel.” The second from the top is the “right” one for me.

    Matt,
    You really turn out some gorgeous blades. That is a superb piece you turned out with Burt. All the best, stay safe, and may you and your family have a Blessed Easter. Larry

    "Texas Toothpick" from Bill Bagwell. This pig sticker has an 11.75-in blade with dogbone cocobolo wood handle.

    That is gorgeous and my favorite so far. Please keep em coming. Any of these would be the pillar of a Bowie collection. How long you been collecting Bagwells?

    I just found this tread and walked through it from beginning to now. I know it's a show of fighting knives, but they are so beautiful that I feel like I just took a walk through an art gallery!

    World War II Randall Orlando Fighter. Much earlier in the thread someone opined that it was unlikely that any of these fantastic blades would ever be used for their intended purpose. But, let me introduce you to one that did “live” to its purpose. This Orlando fighter was in the possession of a USMC officer who was drafted into the OSS and saw extensive action behind enemy lines in Europe. After WWII he continued to serve and, as the OSS was phased out, he became part of the newly-formed CIA and proceeded to serve as an operator in the “black ops” world for many years. This fighter served him well over the years and was blooded during his service. In short, it is a knife that has “been there and done that” and, despite its well-used appearance, is still fully capable of slipping into a sheath and going out there to serve again.
