That looks like it could certainly cut the mustard, Andy - VERY nice !Here's one I made for myself 30 years ago it's sort of a bowie style with a narrower blade, it's referred to as a longhunter style. It has a 8 1/2 in blade and is 13 1/2 overall.
I made the handle out of a piece of elk antler.
It has a threaded tang and the cross guard is silver soldered in place.
I shaped the brass pommel after threading it and tightening down.
It's a pretty formattable weapon and I certainly wouldn't feel under armed if I had to use it in a knife fight.
