Description: Mastersmith Kevin Harvey's work has a tremendous sense of design matched only by his skill of implementation. The handle of this majestic Bowie knife was hand carved from hippo tooth. The carving has tremendous 3-dimensionality, with raised vines, leaves and grapes. The same motif is continued in Kevin's engraving on the nickel silver ferrule. The nickel silver guard is highly sculpted so as to continue the "organic" tone to the Bowie. The Ladder and Flash pattern Damascus for the blade was forged by Kevin's wife, Heather Harvey -- also a mastersmith. Starting with Heather's steel, Kevin forged and finished out the dramatic blade.
This piece is accompanied by a presentation case by Brian Coetzee. Dark pango wood is inlaid with light toned sneezewood for a very dramatic effect. Magnetic closure. Accompanied by certificate from the maker.
