Step 1: Building the Blade

1. make the main part of the blade\

2. make six of these "x" pieces and use the short black rods to attach to the handle

3. continue adding the "x" pieces down the handle until the grip is finished

Step 2: Building the Sheath

1. build two of these, only one needs the white rods on it

2. make the orange strips shown

3. put white rods through the holes on the orange strips and attach to the "y" connectors to complete the sheath (sorry for the blurriness)

Step 3:

 You're done.  Enjoy your new knife. Just remember that it is possible to hurt people with this, so be careful.

    That's a tanto blade. Westernised version of the Japanese blades. Bowie knives are clip-points with a large belly.

    Bowie knifes are a very generic description, this fits it.  Look it up on wiki.

    What, exactly, is it about this knife that qualifies it to be described as a Bowie knife?

    It has a large blade.  Anyway, I made that comment without thinking.  Nevermind.

    Bowie knives are the kind of knives popularised by Colonel Jim Bowie. Generally have a 6" or larger blade, but they are always clip-pointed blades. This is a tanto, and should be labeled as such. My spyderco is more a Bowie than this; and it is a full-flat grind leaf-shaped blade. Still a far cry from the hollow-grind clip point of a Bowie.

    I built it!  It took about 5 min, but it is really cool!  4.5*  The handle is really uncomfy, but who cares.  I added a handgaurd, and I might mod it into a mini gladius.  Keep it up!

    Use the big reply button in the lower right-hand corner.  This looks really good, one of the best knives so far.  I will prolly build it.
