Description: Coming back from the Blade show with mastersmith test knives is one of my great highlights of the year. In 2003, nine new mastersmiths joined the ranks. Five knives were made by each applicant that are the height of their work. These knives were judged by ABS Mastersmiths on fit and finish, as well as general artistry. The standards are exacting. This folder was one of the five knives that Kevin selected as the best of his work for judging by the masters (and the only folder that he presented). Kevin and Heather Harvey became the first husband and wife team of ABS Mastersmiths. Not only this, but Kevin was also awarded the Antique Bowie Association Award (for best reproduction bowie presented by a mastersmith) and the BR Hughes Award (for the best knife presented by a Mastersmith applicant).
As you would expect, the fit and finish of this inspiring folder are exceptional. The blade is gently upswept and shows off Kevin's dramatic Moth Antennae pattern Damascus. The nickel silver thumb stud has been textured at the top for a secure thumb purchase. The bolsters feature matching highly detailed Damascus and have been carved in the front. The arch at the rear of the bolsters is perfectly met with the rosewood burl scales. The rosewood burl handle has excellent swirling grain structure. This is set on titanium liners. The backbar is giraffe bone and has "Kevin Harvey J.S. 2003" engraved on the interior. Exceptional fit and finish throughout with silky smooth action and a perfectly centered blade.
