  • Fittings/Bolsters: 304 Austenitic Stainless Steel, mirror polished

  • Knife: The Bulldog is a serious tactical knife, field proven and battle ready, and though most of my Bulldogs are made for combat use, I've made this one fine enough for collection. The blade shape is a spear point, with a deep hollow grind from a 10" diameter wheel with a three quarter length top swage to increase piercing profile without sacrificing spine strength. So it is very thin at the cutting edge and point, but with a thick spine that makes the knife very strong overall. Ground from quarter-inch thick stock, the spine and thickest part of the knife is a full .238" and has a wide front quillion and thumb rise for maximum safety to the user. The knife was designed to be unsheathed and held in a tactical grip style but is also comfortably held with a traditional grip style. The 440C blade is finely ground and mirror polished throughout, for long lasting beauty and high value. The tang is fully tapered, yet has sufficient thickness to support the rear finger ring. The ring is fully ground and polished for a smooth feel. The blade is fully fileworked, with a staggered and regimented design, and rounded at the handle tang for comfort. The bolsters are zero-care 304 austenitic high nickel, high chromium stainless steel. They are dovetailed and hold two beautiful blocks of brightly polished Crazy Lace Agate gemstone, a very hard, tough, and stunning handle material with bold and intricate patterns, flow banding, chalcedony interspersions, and crystalline inclusions. This is fascinating material, and each piece is unique. The knife feels smooth and comfortable in the hand, strong and solid.
  • Sheath: I made a striking sheath for this special knife, from 9 - 10 oz. thick leather shoulder, hand-carved to bed several panels of Caiman Skin. The Caiman is tough, durable, and characteristic with deep scales and a bold pattern that goes well with the intricate Crazy Lace Agate. The sheath is deep and protective, hand-stitched in a tight pattern with polyester sinew, dyed a medium brown, lacquered and sealed.
  • A great knife for use or collection.

Thanks, P. K.!
