Love that Bowie Don. A few details? Tang type? Steel? Handle material?

On some levels, it's hard to imagine an ESEE 5 in orange.

In others, it totally fits.

Yo,

That's stag for the handle. Since it is a stag round the tang has to be a reduced tang. Since the knife is made by Ted Ott that probably makes the steel ATS-34 or 154 CM.

Yeah, not so much.

The stag was a given, the tang has to be reduced to go into a stag round and I could read the maker's mark off the tang and search it. I'm not sure if the white spacers are ivory or not, though.

Oh, and I saw him win the cutting competition at Blade a couple of years ago.

I know what your are saying. It should be so wrong, yet it looks so right. The lime green ESEE 5, now that's really bizarre, or is it

Some of my favorites...

A Boker Magnum I got as a Christmas present; A "Super Razor Blade Stainless" with a USA manufacture that was my great-grandfather's; A Case trapper; My dad's Case congress; a raindrop damascus-blade Case; a Kershaw OSO Sweet (really awesome knife); A Smith and Wesson M&P; a really old basic wood-handled lockback from my childhood; A cheap 2-blader I picked up in Chinatown that I strangely held on to for years and still like; and, my only custom knife, an ICC "Urban Tactical 2" which survived being buried in Hurricane Katrina water surprisingly well!
