Another one in the books. Is this a bowie or a fighter? I'm not really sure. It's 17" OAL, ~10" blade, 5 stacked bars, mildly twisted, each with ~28 layers (1095 and 15N20). Fittings are blued steel and brass, scales are stabilized maple burl. 58 Rc. A couple of firsts for me on this one: first frame handle, first false edge, first pommel nut, first coffee etch. I'm still on the fence with how the 5-bar pattern turned out but it's growing on me. There's also a bit of a lip on the spacer and some of the bluing wasn't perfect - I may redo some of this but on the plus side, the distal taper was damn near perfect. Cheers, Magnus. The white mark on the guard, above, is actually a dog hair not a scratch. The dog is losing his winter coat so there's fur friggin everywhere.
