    I finished these two orders up this evening. The first one is a fixed blade version of a "Swiss Army Knife" it was ordered by a fellow that carves diamond willow for a hobby.

    The second one is a modified copy of an old german knife made in Solingen Germany called "The Original Bowie"

    Both knives have cocobolo handles and brass hardware.

    Those are both great knives. They've got plenty of style, but still look like users. That Swiss Army look-a-like, though, is just a great idea. Well done!

    Very nice! Love the shape and attention to detail on the bowie guard. Also fond of the "stabby" pose. LOL

    I'd imagine the fixed blade Swiss Army style knife would be safer for carving. (it's not like anyone has had a folder close on their fingers before)

    What's the steel?

    Thanks Dan, both these knives are O1. Out of the few steels I've used I like O1 the best.

    Thanks man, I thought that the little Swiss army one was going to get some bad reviews but I guess I was wrong :)

    It is a little weird. That shape just screams pocket knife. It looks like it should fold. But it is definitely well done.
