This is a "Small Bowie" knife done in a rough country style. Forged 5160 blade, nickel-silver guard, brass pommel/cap with a curly maple handle. I forged and finished this one in a self imposed 6 hour time limit. (The same amount of time allowed on Forged in Fire. Just for fun.) I put it through a cutting test by chopping through a 3-4 inch oak log and then was still able to shave hair and cut paper with it.
