The first time I ever saw a Huber style grind was when I went to see Alex Daniels at his shop.He was working on a reproduction of a unmarked Bowie from the Bowie Knife Book.I came back to my shop and and just had to make one.Here is my reproduction of the unmarked Bowie.What do you guys think,could it be a Huber or a copy from someone else?Sorry I dont have a copy of the original picture to show with it,maybe someone with a copy of the Bowie Knife Book can scan a copy to show us.This one has a 8 inch blade with a 4 1/2 inch handle.
Thanks for looking,
Bruce

Bruce, have I ever told you how much I admire your work?
That Huber grind can't be easy to execute, I think what you've done here is exceptional.
