Gunslinger with a History

Here is a Gunslinger I just finished up.
I have made quite a few of these, the customer wanted the long spine with the filework all the way. I wasn't crazy about it, but its all about the customer.
OAL 9.5"
Blade 5"
388 Layer Damascus from Alabama Damascus
The guard I forged from a Bolt the customer gave me, then I cold blued it. He owns a shortline RR in Oregon and said the bolt came from a RR Bridge built in 1933.
He also gave me the date nails for the handles.
The scales are Spalted Maple.
I made the sheath too.







Thanks for looking.

Dwane

First of all I must say I am a NUT ( In A Good Way, LOL ) when it comes to Old Westerns and Antique Guns.

I absolutly love this knife!

I think everything works together to make one great looking package.

I just wish I could see the edge of the spine to view your filework.

Thanks for sharing!

Jeff

Here are a few more pictures WITH a gun.
The gun is an 1873 Winchester 44 Cal Wells Fargo & Co made 1875 ( Not Mine , I wish )
The Chaps are my brothers, his dad had them made about 1950







Thanks for the comments fellas
