    Amazing work on this one Bill. Great looking steel and masterfully executed bolsters and handle!

    That Musk ox boss looks familiar!!

    Guess Bill is occupied making the last knives for Bladeshow!
    He will ha at table 15Q, so if you are a nut go visit him, and do a lot of pics and play with his knives

    I wish you luck on Blade Bill. However, when you spot that sneaky Hobbit, make sure to hide this knife. We dont wanna have this end up in Seattle, so keep an eye on him! A few pics of your table would be fun, as I wonder what else you bring for the show

    Late to the party, but I have to say, integral bolster and your (Bill) handle (handled personally) makes it for me. Forget about Damascus, musk ox horn, I can live without it, but those two things, handle (shape and size) and bolster done perfectly, make it a perfect western knife for me. Period.

    And you know what they say - people like to copy beautiful things and boy, do I want to make one like that.

    Great work, Bill. Very inspiring.

    edge thickness 2mm behind edge, .2mm
    width at heel 40.4mm
    length of cutting edge, 298.45mm
    handle, 140mm, long, 17.3mm, wide (side to side) at bolster, 22.6mm high, (top to bottom) at bolster. 27mm wide at swell, 31.75mm high at swell, 23mm wide at the waist, 28mm high at waist.

    Well with the heavy musk ox handle it balances right in the curve of the bolsters. I thought about thinning the handle to take a little weight out of it but it feels so good I didn't want to mess with it.
