POD's Boucan Knife

17 posts in this topic

In my Trade Thread POD offered to trade me two custom sword belts for a Boucan Knife and this is what I came up with. We also took a pattern and put it into our production line on a bit longer blade. We are calling it our Caribbean. Look for that soon. I already made 2 of them for a stage combat show in Jersey.

I think it turned out well. The production version flares a bit more towards the end to make it a bit nicer fit to the tang. This is a nice and simple design that allows us to keep the peice down.

HAHA. Glad you like it. Tell the wifey that I will gladly make another if she wishes! I have a ton of posting to catch up on. Been slacking on my online stuff as the orders are piled up.

I know that feeling. Quiting my webdesign job in the new year to concentrate on my leather work and replica business as I got so many orders backed up.

I am hoping to make a sheath for it in the leather left over from making your swordbelt. Should hopefully be shipping that to you in the next week.

Beautiful workmanship! Now, how many more do you think you're going to make?

That is just awfully darn nice. As good as it looks in the first pictures, it really comes to life when it's held in the picture.

What's the Boucan connection, the story of the name? Is it to be used for carving up BBQ? Looks right handy.

Out here in Depoe Bay, we have Riptide Barbeque right next door to Pirate Coffee Company and I had to explain to Zeke, the owner, that he's a Boucaneer next door to a Pirate. Course up the road a few blocks is the Pirate Cove gift shop, Pirate's Booty Pub, and down the road the other way is Cap'n Dan's Pirate Pastry Shop and the new Black Pearl Pub. We're a little nutty here on the Oregon Coast, and it doesn't hurt that there's a bay here called Pirate Cove.

Anyway, very nice, and beautiful are the others on your website, too!
