That's a great old knife. What's the story behind it?

Default Bolo

I picked the knife up at a auction tears ago.

It was military issue and was the knife style that replaced the 1910 Bolo.

I wish I had the sheath

Take Care

I bought this cheap Ka-Bar bowie about a year ago for like 25 bucks. It's not a bad knife, but it's not American-made (made in Taiwan or somewhere) and it's not as rugged as Marine Ka-Bars. But it works alright for what I use it for.

The first is a birds eye damascus with rosewood grip. I had a guy named Larry Menesche I think that is how his name is pronounced build it for me before I went TDY overseas. The second is one I have been working on off and on for several years (obviously more off than on). It is a file knife and after seeing the fine specimens of the other file knives I am very humbled. Debating 550 cord or wood for grips.

hmh - The Damascus blade is very nice. As far as your work in progress. Don't be too hard on yourself. A little fine tuning and that will be one sweet knife with the added benefit of you having made it. I would go with stabilized wood handles or you might check out dymondwood knife scales for it. There are a lot of combinations you can go with. Check here http://www.knifemaking.com/default.asp for all of your knife making needs. There are other places you can find on the internet as well as tutorials on you tube.

I dunno man, a Paracord handle would look pretty cool on that knife. Not sure how it'd feel, I've never held one, but it'd certainly look cool

Hmh. You may look into nylon material fo the handle of your knife that's what I had put on my two file knifes and I really like the durability of it. Its made of black delron.

let the bullets do the talking!
