Short Recurve Bowie     just off the bench, was a fun one to finish up and play with for a bit.

Milk River DagMMilk River DagMade this one a short while back, just before Trackrock. The 7' blade is forged from commercial Husq. mower blade (a CruV series steel); 13" OAL; guard is hammered bronze; handle is hog jaw with copper pins, antler inserts & pewter; Sheath is deer over cow with copper cones and horsehair roaches; Milk River Souix design on sheath.     Photography by my friend Dirk Lootz, recently from So. Africa (now trying to become a Georgia Redneck). He is an exceptional knifemaker as well.

I've not really made an estimate on that. I expect it's probably about the same.

Have to say that the current sheaths that I do make the first one with stamping look a little bad.

The helpfulness going on in the group is just fantastic!  Alexander the sheaths are looking great.  Are you finding it any easier or even less time involved to do the stamping than sewing in the panels like you were before?

Sheath = finished:

Just needs sharpening and my name on it now.

Thanks Stefan, I'll be doing the final work on it this evening. The loop has been glued and everything is dry. So it's contact cement and stiching on the couch for me this evening.

Tom,

Here is a tutorial I put together a while back. Hope it helps

Stefan,

Yes, I epoxy them and then peen them quickly. It's probably not the best way to do it but that's how I started out doing my knives in case I over peen them and the pins get loose. How do you do them?
