"Thor" Bowie Blank

Thor is a new extreme design eye catcher.

First off it has a unquie front guard with the ability to safely put two fingers on either side of the guard. The guard has the shape

of a railway tie put gives the look and feel of Thor's hammer.

Over all length is 11 1/2 inches. The blade is 6 1/4". The handle area is 4 3/4" x 1 3/4" (widest point). The wide lower end of the can be sanded

narrower depending on your handle material.

There are 4 - 5/32" pin holes and 3/16" lanyard hole

The blade is made from high quality extreme weather endurance 440c stainless steel. Bolster is attached and blade and bolster are polished.

It is sharpened and ready for handling

Last two pictures is an example done in Rosewood Burl and stag not included.

Are all steels the same? I buy the steel and unlike others that propose they have 440c the steel that is junk steel or lessor quality is usually a satin finish that hide warps or imperfections in the steel. The difference is strength and field use. Most Chinese steel is 420 and Pakistan steel are old Russian Tanks melted down from Afghanistan. Real 440c and has the ability to keep and hold an edge that will not shatter in cold weather like cheap metal. We love what we do first as hobbyists and as designers.
