Bravo 1 by Pearce by Logan-Pearce Bravo 1 by Pearce by Logan-Pearce
Bark River's Bravo 1 without the thumb stub.

Oh and made by me for a friend. :D

Name: Bravo 1 1/2
Blade: 0-1
Handle: Claro Walnut


At first I was going to leave a hamon on it, like we had talked about. Then I found out that I really don't like the way that the hamon on 0-1 looks when completely finished. I did get it to finish out kind of dark, but it still didn't have the results that I was wanting. After cleaning it up and everything, I liked this look the best. It looks more like their Bravo 1, but still different enough that you can tell that I made it.

Plus my name is stamped on it. But that is besides the point. :P I have a lot of fun with these projects. Don't get me wrong, I love making my own designs. I get a certain satisfaction when I make these though.

One of these days I'm going to pick up a random magazine and make a replica of everything in it! Just because sometimes I want every knife that I see pictured. Okay~ Maybe not, but how cool would that be?!?!

Too cool for school.

This is a knife I would use everyday, for sure. Very simple, yet beautiful in it's simplicity and because of it's excellent craftsmanship.

Hey, I like knives that actually work, and it's a huge bonus if they look good too.

lol! Well, if anyone could pull it off, I'd say it'd be you, Logan. XD

I've never seen any Bark River knives before, so this is a brand
new knife to me. XD I really like it! The wood of the handle looks
pretty sick too.

They make some pretty good looking knives. Simple, but that is the point, I think. Most people that use their knives don't want a lot of carved wings on them. It's weird. :D

Never heard of it. I guess that's why I didn't recognize it when I glanced over the description.

She's a pretty popular knife steel these days. Some fairly famous blades made from it. The Ray Mears Woodlore knife for example :)

Looks nicely balanced.

On another note, have you ever fancied making something along the lines of [link] by Jesper Voxns at www.voxknives.com?

Some of the deep profiles he offers look absolutely bitchin! Gotta admire the use of 7-8mm thick! plate steel to make a knife - does look really cool - though you've still gotta carry this about in the field, of course...

Sounds like it could be a heavy burden. :D But! the good thing about knives like that is that if you don't want to cut them, you can always knock someone/something out. :D

That handle looks like nicely textured wood. Knife seems a little simple, but sometimes that's the best!

Logan, would you be interested in seeing some pictures of my favorite knives? And use them/their shape as inspiration for new knives, perhaps?

WOW! great rendition of an awesome blade! what is the thumb stud you didnt keep on your model?
ive looked and see barely any differences between yours and BRKT but thats a good thing. its totally awesome in my honest opinion. id like to see how well it works in the field.

Thanks man! Most of the ones I've seen have a thump ramp. The others ones that are rampless bravo 1, have a sort of thumb groove. (At least from what I've seen)
