The Alamo

Scott crafted JS test knife number five into a Texas-size bowie, dressed it in Desert Ironwood, and called it the Alamo. The 11.25 inch blade on this mega knife sports a lot of attitude, along with a wicked clip and a georgeous hamon. It is truly a monster when compared to the Zulu, but the two make a nice pair.

The hamon is hard to see in the studio shots, but it's there.

The Alamo
Steel: W2
Finish: Hand-rubbed with clay hamon
Handle: Desert Ironwood
Overall Length: 16 3/4 inches
Blade Length: 11 1/4 inches

Scott now has five knives ready to present to a panel of mastersmiths in San Antonio but is working hard on two more designs that he hopes to finish before we leave. Keep your fingers crossed!
