    The ragweed these days is kicking my butt. Been sneezing alot, so I figured I'd do some coffin as well. Spent the better part of the long weekend sneezing and working on these two blades, both custom orders. One is a 99 layer multi-bar opposing twist Damascus with a fine piece of mesquite burl. The other is a more utilitarian forged 1084 with natural canvas micarta. I've done six or seven coffin handles and finally feel like I have the process down. Lots of measurements involved in keeping things symmetrical and in making the pin placement look right.

    The coffin handle is my favorite on a Bowie. Great work
