Nick Wheeler W2 Fighter
Blade Forums had a competition to choose the best custom bowies of 2010. Of the knives shown, my favorite is the Nick Wheeler fighter shown above. Wheeler is a full-time bladesmith operating out of Winlock, Washington.
I also like the one made by Bruce Bump, who has a shop in Walla Walla, Washington. Its details give full expression to the knifemaker's art, but it is a little ornate for my taste--not to suggest that I wouldn't be proud to own it.
Bruce Bump Justice Bowie
I love the classic 19th-century look of the "Dogbone" Bowie made by John White. White's shop is located in the Florida Panhandle town of Valparaiso.
Taste in knives is a highly individual matter, and it's no use arguing about it. You like what you like.
