As long as we're talking about Bowies, here's mine, a new D-Guard. It arrived yesterday from Chris (@2Wheels4Ever) at Iron Ridge Ranch.

I supplied the antler and some basic input, but Chris truly designed and created a beautiful beast of a knife.
It's hand forged 5160 steel, the blade is about 10.5", about 2.75" wide and it weighs 2.4lbs. He also made the sheath.
I wanted a button type of sheath that you can slip behind your belt for such a large knife. In the old days it went behind a sash and was sometimes called a sash sheath.

He sent me pics of the work in progress but I don't want to clutter up the thread, so here's the basics.

ESEE Junglas, love it. I mainly got it because I kept finding myself chopping wood with my hatchet in the dark. Its much easier to safely Baton in cold and wet environments compared to chopping. Good for clearing like a Machette too. I plan on making a Kydex holster for my NAA Mini Master to bolt up to the knife sheath. Pretty slick combo!

The jungles on the wet side of Oregon i take my Condor to make my way through. Briar and stinging nettles are no fun as you go to retrieve your downed game.

Camping I use a hatchet or axe but moving through our jungles that Condor is my ticket.

Fits perfect on the side of my pack.

I followed this guys lead on my hunting pack, notice he has the same Condor.
