Another unusual piece from weaponsmith Tom Hyle of Colorado, this integral bowie knife started life as a large thread-cutting tap, then became a tennoning chisel, and finally was reworked by Tom and his brother Nick into the bowie knife you see here. A seriously strong piece of steel, definetly one-of-a-kind.
