My personal interpretation of the D-Guard Bowie. 11" Blade, 16" OAL. Mammoth Ivory handle with domed Argentium Silver pins. Definitely a tricky design, but a VERY rewarding experience once everything finally falls into place!
Low layer damascus clip point.
Brass guard and pin.
Cocobolo and Ipe wood handle with white g10 spacers.
Hidden tang construction.
Includes black and brown hand stitched leather sheath.

After 2hrs on the whetstones, my handmade aogami steel Japanese nakiri is now arm hair shaving sharp. Considering that I paid $60 for it, which is like 1/5 the price of a fully finished one, I think I came out way ahead.
Almost finished up with this bad boy. I couldn't decide between my last bit of abalone shell or turquoise, so I used both. Forged from 80crv2. Rosewood handle with brass lanyard hole and brass pins. This is a custom order, not for sake.
