An exciting New Bowie Knife Project from Jesse Brennan

Jesse is in the process of completing an exciting new Bowie Knife: a Sam Bell style with double gutters and a horn and silver handle.
I will publish more pictures of this knife as they become available. For now, here is a picture of Jesse working on final shaping of the blade after forging. Also included, a first look at the finished blade, an early stage of forming the handle and a closeup of the handle.
This fine knife is for sale. Contact Jesse at 907-803-3612 if you are interested.
