Yes, the profile is nice. I know with swords and knives, the blade should be THE THING. But I easily get distracted by (and appreciate) good furniture/koshirae/etc on the hilt. So, with this bowie, I really do like the look of the wood grain on the hilt scales. And the scales and the tang of the knife fit absolutely seamlessly. That really stood out. I've held high end and custom knives and swords that failed in this department. Its always nice to see when some one gets it right.
As for a sheath, yep, a bowie this cool deserves one. I'll have to come up with something eventually.
RufusScorpius: Looks like I might be going to Mexico City soon. After that, Denver.

RufusScorpius: I'm the senior manager for north America for a company that provides training for the railroad industry.

ouroboros: What's the industry?
Feb 19, 2020 3:38:44 GMT
RufusScorpius: I've been busy since I got home. if N America wasn't enough for me, we are expanding this year into Latin America. Because I don't have enough on my plate as it is.

RufusScorpius: I think my head is good now. the beer seems to have helped the leg problems.
Feb 16, 2020 13:23:08 GMT
ouroboros: How is your head and knee? I understand the beer was worth the trip?
