Description: Mastersmith Kevin Harvey forged this dramatic Bowie style blade to shape from his own carbon steel Damascus. The tight ladder pattern has a nice mix of detail with bold pattern. The sculpted guard is carved from nickel silver and shows tremendous work. Cape buffalo horn forms the handle. The natural texture of the horn forms a sure grip, but is nicely smoothed for comfort. The tang is enclosed with a giraffe bone casing. Accompanied by a presentation box made by Brian Coetzee of spalted beech with ebony inlays. The magnetic clasp is a nice touch. Exceptional work throughout.
