Default Bowie and a Dagger

Hi guys thought you might like to see a couple of items i made for a show back in the summer.The bowie is made with 5mm 01 carbon with an anjin handle.The blade is 10" long and yes it is heavy The dagger is made from 4mm 01 carbon 11" long blade.The leather for the handle i nicked from an old bag i had.The brass pommel was just a round brass bar which i shaped by hand. They do both need a good clean now but i just hang them on my bedroom wall now.Any way hope you like them as much as i liked making them

OPPS i deleted the dagger sorry

That bowie wouldn't look out of place replacing a butchers' cleaver
Dagger looks like it should be with a rapier.
Nice pieces Gary
