    I posted photos of a large, classic Patrick Henry bowie and a matching set of two huge swedged bowies I made recently. I thought I'd post some smaller knives I've made. Some people like big knives. Some people prefer smaller ones. It's a matter of personal preference. Sometimes people buy large knives for display only. Others use them. Some people buy small knives, not to use them, but to add to their collections. Others use them for field dressing both large and small game or for personal protection. The knife was one of the first real tools. It also, however, became an object of art. Perhaps this separates it from other utensils. While people have made many ornate knives with jewels, carved handles and other techniques to create exquisite beauty, I don't believe any one has done the same with a hoe, hammer or other tool. I think this also holds true for firearms. What size knife do you prefer?

    I'm not a big knife person but those do look really nice. I like that first one a lot.

    Many of the steel blanks are fabricated from 440c high carbon stainless steel with a mirror finish.

    Shi - I have a black obsidian coming and I also swooped in and absconded with Randy's faux handle upswpet skinner.

    I will be posting pictures and reviews of both, but from what I have seen, these knives are going to be VERY good. ;)

    I must kneel before the alter of Cane as his obsidian IS what inspired Benning and I to coordinate on these new black beauties.

    However, we WILL be taking our knives MUCH further than Cane has done with his two shade wonder knife. :cool:
