This one.  This one is my favorite.  The lines are elegantly brutal and the proportions are only slightly exaggerated as a proper Bowie should be.

Matt used to have a website, however it appears to have been discontinued and is now owned by a Japanese nail salon, if you want, I can give you his facebook page and you can message him, just send me a PM.

    It was a good Christmas for me. I got the Cold Steel cutlass machete, and Kershaw Diskin Hunter.

    The machete came with the worst edge I have ever seen. I have done better with a hand grinder blindfolded, but it is fixable.

    In his own words "10 inch 1084 blade with a slight recurve, claro walnut handle, copper guard, nickel spacer. i goofed on this one, i did the dreaded " epoxy showing through the handle because i ground the finger curve too deep" so therefore this is my new personal camping/woods knife :D it has no keeper strap so its always ready to go, and a copper wound throat so i never accidentally cut the sheath."

    If it were any other blade shape, I would want it.

    Really? This is the knife that's "fluffed up"? I wonder what kind of miracles his "good" ones look like  :cool.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    The whole tracker thing is kind of getting ridiculous to me, but those, I like them for some reason.   :cool

    And to answer your question, here are some of John April's other works and I gotta tell ya, he doesn't give himself enough credit.

    I'd like a version of the Tracker if it just lost that weird saw blade back edge.  That really is the most over-blown knife since Rambo's.  But Rambo was an awesome move... The Hunted was just - not.  Yet that knife gained mystic powers because of it.

    The very fact that you know that much about Krull, I find sad and disturbing and for you not to have liked The Hunted, you're probably suffering from Low T, or worse.

    There's plenty of T around here.  Ask anybody.   :cool    Or just check out the random internet weirdness thread.   :facepalm

    Hmmm .  .  .   :hmm    Sort of an extra chunky take-off of the Graham Razel.

     :shrug Eh, some prefer them to be a little more chunky.....  :neener  :facepalm.

    I liked the razel. Never owned one, but it's nice to have different options and it is a unique blade.

      Wow. Now that is an unique blade, simple yet elegant....looks like a Roman Pugio or Parazonium, but with a Wharncliffe blade. Lovely!

    That's a Bowie I like.  Now if they would just get rid of the bolsters/handguards.  I know they have a purpose, but if I am down to fighting with knives, I have screwed up so royally that keeping fingers is way behind looks in MY priorities.

    It's a seax. It was the eating/work/last ditch defense blade of the Saxons, Vikings and other Germanic/Scandinavian people. The long seax was the sword version and where the Saxons were suppposed to have derived their name ie. "people of the sword" or something such.

    I took a few pictures of some sharp pointy things that have been in the family a while today so I could ask Mad Mike about them. May as well share a few here too.

    I am a nerdtastic "Dune" fan and have always wanted a jambiya-type knife as I've always envisioned the blades from that tale to be. I've also always thought the Yemeni/Southern Arabian Peninsula tradition of wearing the jambiya in the front sash as pretty badass. Sooooo I finally bought a jambiya from Atlanta Cutlery which is basically the storefront for Windlass Steelcrafts. I smoked over the traditional Persian/Indian version they offer but decided on the modernized version as it was full tang. The blade is 9.5" long and is 3/16" thick



    It has rubber handle scales that smell like a tire shop but lock your grip in rock solid. They are removeable and that gives me the project of working some wood, bone or horn into a fancier set of handle scales. I can't wait to get started as soon as I decide on the material.



    The balance and feel is fantastic and it dances in my hand despite being such a large blade. The extremely curved tip is unlike any I've ever owned but it still produces a good stab wound on some guilty boxes by the front door.



    The sheath is just stiff leather and a bit thin around the mouth with no reinforcing band. It does have a good metal tip and a large stainless steel stud for tucking it inside your belt. I like that as I do a lot of my projects at night in my shop out back and in addition to a pistol I like to tuck a Bowie in my belt for the walk in the dark.



    All in all I am very pleased and have always liked all of the Windlass products I've handled. For $50 it was a great buy.
