Copper Bowie

Finally Finished Copper Bowie

I’ll be working on my Copper Bowie today. Right now, I have to shape the feral where it meets the guard……have to do that before assembly or I won’t be able to later. Might also heat treat today…..if not possibly tomorrow.

Finally finished the Copper Bowie… has a 10″ blade, 15″ OAL. The guard and butt plate are copper & the handle is spalted maple. This is a through tang design with the tang threaded by a 10/32 nut and also to the butt plate.
