Many posts on the forum with Photobucket pics - all gone after the hijacking / extortion plot.

First knife post in a while and first one I?ve finished in a while. Randall #1 inspired. 3/16? thick O1 tool steel, Peters? Heat Treat, Rockwell 59, 8? blade with 7? cutting edge, convex ground, natural micarta with brass hardware.

Nice Bowie type.  I like the brass guard treatment and the grind.  Thanks for posting this one.

Well, you certainly nailed the shape of one of Bo's famous blades...as a matter of fact, when I first saw the photo I thought it was actually a Randall that you had maybe refurbished or re-handled! :shrug:       As per usual with your knives, the work looks impeccable! :thumbsup:

Thanks for checking in, Sarge.....it's great hearing from you again!
