Description: Every so often a knife comes through that is magnificent beyond others. This is one such Bowie. Mastersmith Kevin Harvey began by forging out a raindrop pattern Damascus blade. This was mirror polished and then gun blued for a very high contrast pattern. Gold tones move across a deep blue background.
The guard, ferrule and pommel have all been forged from mild steel and gun blued to a deep black. Kevin meticulously inlaid these with 24k gold in an abstract leaf pattern. The handle -- also featuring gold tones -- is formed from stabilized and dyed box elder burl. It swells at the palm and toward the butt for a sure, comfortable grip. Exceptional work throughout.
Accompanied by certificate from the maker and sneezewood presentation case inlaid with tamboti wood.
