Bowie knife with hidden tang: Andy

A bowie knife with two part handle and a secondary steel piece between index and middle finger. The handle is secured with additional pins. The handle is made of apple wood of our lovely small apple tree, that broke in winter 2017 to 2018 under heavy snow. The blade has a mix of polished surface on the bevels and a scratch pattern on the flat parts of the blade.
